Hi all

I've read all the posts about cleaning and lubing the bearings and I must say thanks for all the expertise and tips and know how.

I was wondering though, how to clean the bearings on the side of gimbal I.e tilt/roll?

I've watched the tutorial on PRO website, but was wondering is there another way?
Do u submerge the whole yoke in alchohol oR should one take the bearings out, or is spraying them with contact cleaner enough?

I would say stick with the PRO tutorial, done it many times myself, never had a single issue. Why are you looking for a different way of doing it? It is quite straightforward and if it's the way they do it, well, there must be a reason....
Happy cleaning
