    Default Nemesis noise

    Nemesis is shooting well, but noticed a noise. After tracking it down, if I tap the bottom cam with my index finger, I get a rattling sort of sound. It is at 55 lbs with 60 lb limbs, no noticeable damage or problems. Anyone experience this? It does have barnsdale limbs, so a little earlier in the life cycle. I removed the modules and the same sound was created. Not the draw stop. The X is solid, as are some other bows I have.

    Thank you! WW

    It might be the "e clips" that hold the axle in place. Try dobbing some string wax on them and see if that stops it.

    If it's not the E clips or any screws the next place to check is are your bearings

    I'm guessing bearings. The noise is present with and without the module installed. Email sent to Martin, I'd just as soon send it in for a checkover. Shoots great, but...

    Also be sure to check the reinforcement screws in the limb tips.

    So does this bow have spacers between the cam and limbs? Or are the bearings made in some way to fill the gap?

    I'm just trying to figure out if a bearing would have loosened up, or where the problem would be. Something just isn't as tight as it should be.

    There's always the possibility of a bad bearing from the bearing manufacturer. The Nemeisis hasn't been out long enough for anyone to wear out the bearings. Consider this --- for each shot the bearing makes less than one revolution. Say 200 shots a day, five days a week. That's about 1,000 revolutions per week, or 50,000 revoltutions per year. My waterwell pump does that in less than 15 minutes, and it's 20 years old. Plus, your bow spends 90% of its life in an airconditioned house.

    Now, I'm not saying it's not a bearing problem, just saying it's very unlikely. Hope you get her fixed.

    Best of luck to you.

    Thanks everyone. I agree, the bearing isn't very likely. I'll keep working on it and the dealer ordered some parts to try. There's not that much to cause it...
