[s][s]just got a yuuksta in the mail a few hours ago, and I got a knot. But when I try to unscrew it, it won’t budge. any way to loosen it up? maybe like some wd40 on the axle or something?
so far I’ve tried:
-just using my hands to grip as hard as possible and turn
-the loop 900’s key thing to turn the axle
-using those rubbing grip jar opener things on both sides
-stockton t-handle hex keys (http://www.cyclegear.com/images/replacementmaintenance/stockton_t-handle_MD.jpg) those. It actually ended up twisting my hex key ._.
-put a drop of 3 in 1 on each side
It’s as if someone put locktite on both sides ><
edit: emailed the store I bought it from about replacing it, because it won’t budge at all. I just tried a normal allen wrench (one of the L shaped ones) and it started to bend that one too.[/s]
Okay, so an update. Sent it back to the store I bought it from, they oiled it up and took it apart, and sent it back to me. now it comes apart just fine.
But now another problem arises… the bearing is stuck. I’ve tried the string trick, pliers, and soon I’m going to home depot to try a metal tube.
any other suggestions?
and I’m not worried about damaging the bearing. just if anyone knows any way to remove it, let me know. I’m pretty sure I already damaged it with the pliers. :/[/s]
Editedit: This is resolved, so icthus or another mod can go ahead and lock it. I sent it back to yoyofactory after the store I bought it from originally couldn’t fix it. They ended up cutting open the bearing, but they still couldn’t get the inner ring of the bearing off. I just wanted to let anyone who tried to help out know what ended up happening in case they cared.
