PostSubject: response trigger and cyclone not cycling   help? cyclone feed issue I_icon_minitimeSat Mar 14, 2009 8:01 am

I have not played around with the X7, but here is what I found looking around. Hope it helps.

If this doesn't help bring it to the field after we open and we can take a look at it.

I'LL GET IT!!! ha second posting here thank you!!!

I had the same exact problem just 2 days ago....but worse cause it just would not spin at all.

It is not 1 specific thing that is causing your problem.

What I did to get it working perfectly was:
switch the banjo fitting to the top hole on the x7.

Took off about 75% of the grease that I had put after changing to the new ratchet. I guess Grease is just too thick for the cyclone.

I loosened ALL of the screws on the cyclone (even the one holding down the paddles.

Most important of all (cause after I did this it worked like a charm): I got a spring from a cheap "clicky" ball point pen, and used that as the spring that goes inside the actual ratchet. The stock spring looked to sturdy and not flimsy enough....and the one from the pen was nice and flexible.

OH yeah.....don't expect it to work the first time you shoot. I suggest that you manually turn the cyclone paddles (not push the ratchet arm) all crazy to get the grease kickin' so that it "wears in". Do that before you try it out.
