Signs of a Dead bearing?


(~ZB~) #1

I was just wondering if someone could tell me about the signs of a dead bearing. I ask because my bearing isnt as quiet as it use to be, it’s sleep times have drasticly shortened, and the slightest jerk will bring the yoyo back up ???

DId you use thick lubr because if you did then your yoyo turns rusty just wat happen to my dark magic IF not how long have you had ur yoyo


#3

Did you use lube of any kind on your bearing?


(~ZB~) #4

Dry bearings spin longer, but are noisier, and die faster.

Clean it. Try thin lube.

If you don’t know, put just a little bit of lube instead of just drowning it. :wink:

You just contradicted yourself…

Dry bearings do not die faster.
