the 4 best ways I know to help without lowering sleep time are graphite powder (found by the keys, WalMart, AutoZone, or just about any other store) you’ll take 1-2 little granules’ and roll them in the bearing, this will fill in the cracks in the balls, much smoother, and for about 3 bucks it’ll last you a long time. Practice will prove it.
olive oil or Canola Oil, take a toothpick and wet the ends, were not looking for a full drop here, were looking to fill in any aberrations in the ball retainer. It works best with bearings with shields, too much and the bearing will slow, or become responsive and even goopy. Simply run the wet toothpick on the INNER race and tour ready to roll.
yomega Lube pens last FOREVER and are pretty cheap, the lube is safe oh all plastics thus far as well, I use the canola oil method with this as well.
MonkeyFinger design sells “Gorilicus Lubricus” being is synthetic, it works as the yomega lubricant does, it positions the steel, fills in the bearing imperfections, and is very nice, I find its a bit more smelly, and expensive than yomega lubepen. But it’s smoother and easier to get right if its your first try.
try them and let me know how they work for you! Highly recommend the graphite, its the most difucyt
