    Default Bones Super Swiss 6 bearings noise and wiggle

    Hi!

    Bought Super 6 bearings about half a week ago. I noticed that while riding on a not that smooth pavement then they make noise like shaking a sand in an aluminium can or similar. If there's no weight on the board then they're silent and spin freely. Another thing that I noticed is that the bearings have play in them. When I for example shake the bearing from side to side then the inner race or the balls with the retainer have play room. Even if I install spacers and tighten the nut down then the wheels still have some wiggle room. My Bones Reds doesn't have that kind of play when I shake them.

    Is that normal? Maybe they're supposed to have that play and sound because they have one less ball in them? Or maybe I'm just paranoid.

    Thanks

    Allot of people like to hear the bearings, so they take the shields off... are your shields off? might just be a characteristic of the bearing... read some reviews to see if anyone else is experiencing the same.

    Nope, shields are on. I've tried googling similar issues or any issues at all but haven't found anything helpful. The noise isn't some humming sound or similar, it's more like a metal rattling sound.

    If they keep speed and they are not what your used to I'm sure they are fine.
