Default Problem with the KM Purge

I just bought a new KM Amoura, and the purge doesn't work very well. When I purge it, very little smoke comes out. I know part of what KMs are known for is their extraordinary purges. My last KM purged great. Has anyone else had a problem like this? Is it something that it just needs to be broken in or maybe should I get a new ball bearing? Thanks.

Probably a crappy ball bearing, or it's covered in gunk.

if its something to do with a ball bearing replace it with a 6mm airsoft bb. Theyre much lighter, so purging is easier, and since its plastic you dont get anywhere near the level of condensation you get with a metal on metal contact.

The airsoft seems like a good idea. I took it off, the bearing is clean and the cap where the smoke comes out is too. I blew through it a few times and it seems fine. My money is on the bearing.
