I was playing with my yyj surge when mid sleep it just suddenly got louder, probably twice as loud. I stopped it, took it apart and noticed the axle was loose. No problem I just tightened it with some pliers using a cloth so I didn’t damage the threads. I spun the bearing and it didn’t spin for nearly as long as the last time I spun it with my finger, also it sounded almost like a scratchy rattling noise. I assume the bearing is raw and any lube that was in there has been mostly ran out from heavy play.
Does this sound like I just need a drop of lube? I would just try but I don’t have any so I want to know if I should buy some
