Vibey protostar


#1

I just siliconed my Protostar, and now the bearing is super loud and it’s all vibey. Any reasons why and what I can do? D:


#2

Did you get any silicone in the bearing? Are you sure the vibiness (what?) is from the yoyo and not just your throw?


#3

Yeah not my throw this time. The spin time decreased too… D:


#4

Then it’s silicone on the bearing. Why do you need to silicone the ProtoStar when it uses silicone response in the first place?


#5

x52? It uses K-pads. And now I found out that after cleaning my bearing, the spin time decreased. What should I do?
edit it became more quiet too. D:


#6

K-Pads are silicone, but their pads so. I would try lubing the bearing. Or if that doesn’t work, check if theirs anything in the spacers.


#7

Oh great. Now the problem is when I screw my yoyo, i feel like i need to over tighten it in order to meet the arrows. And when I screw it, I have the feeling of twisting against the plastic and the spacers get stuck to the bearing when I unscrew the yoyo again. T_T I’m getting seriously frustrated about it already…


#8

The arrows don’t have to match. Don’t overtighten it.


#9

That what happened to my ProtoStar which caused it to vibe too much. The axle is messed up somehow, you have to tune it I guess. I don’t know a whole lot about modifications. But I do know the vibe problem has to do with the axle.

i own a siliconed protostar. theres no vibe. must be the bearing. How long do you shake the bearing when cleaning? What do u use to clean it? Switch out for another bearing and test it out

Nah the bearing is fine. It can spin like usual. Should be the axle I guess? Not too sure. Any ways I can restore it?
