Noisy Fly
« on: February 16, 2008, 04:01:12 am »
Hi there, I've had my Sundia Fly for a few months now, and I'm really enjoying it, but the bearing axle seems to be a bit loud. I'm sure it's natural for it to be noisier than non-bearing diabolos, and from what I can tell, it hasn't affected gameplay, but it's just a bit noisier than I would expect it to be. I've disassembled my Fly a few times for various reasons, and I noticed that of the two washer-type metal rings, one had what I assume to be grease, while the other (on the side which is much noisier) has only a very small amount of grease. So I'm wondering, what could I use to help lubricate that side?

theres another thread here

http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=4190.msg51235;topicseen#msg51235

that thread talks about a similar thing, its suggested to use sillicon lubricant (i think) or something similar that you would use on a bikes chain, dont use dw40 (according to nev)

please use the search function or look around before starting a new thread

thankyou, daniel
