Well, hello everyone. I’ve been lurking the forums for quite a while now, but haven’t posted since i’m quite a beginner and i can’t bring much value. Consider this my truely official hello to everyone. recently i have got my hands on a trifecta bearing. I can’t even begin describing the hassle of getting one of those suckers in romania atm. But here start my questions (bear in mind we’re a really small community over here, and don’t really have accesss to all the cool stuff i see in the forums, so for the most things we can’t use someone else’s for comparison)… From the get go, it seemed to spin significantly less than my spec that came with the dv888. Also, it felt sort of “chunky” in one point. Like it would have something in it that it’s passing over every time it revolves. I thought it was just breaking in. Gave it like a week of a solid 2 hrs/day. Still nothing. Cleaned it. Nothing. Cleaned it with the paper method. Nada. On a typical flick i get like 10 seconds on the spec( i don’t flick that hard) . On the trifecta , 2. It seems this lil bearing of mine is a bit off-centered.my questions are the following:
- Did I break it? How? Maybe during shipping?
- Was it a defective one? Is it typical, should i avoid them in the future? I got it after reading good reviews, but now idk really
- Regardless of how it got like this, can I fix it?
