  • Remove lower bearing from triple

    Does anyone know the procedure for removing the lower bearing/race from the steering stem before I start beating on it with a hammer and punch?

    Take it to NAPA or some machine shop and have it pressed off.

      Yep, If you beat on the bearing it will probably destroy the bearing and leave the outer race. I did this with my wheel bearing on my car, tryin to save a few dollars and ended up having to have a machine shop press it out.
      Don't know how it works? Take it apart and find out!

      Here's how it sounds.

        Well it's off. Nothing that a hammer and chisel couldn't take care of. It was a bitch though, but that's how the manual says to do it. Now I just need to find a good place to buy the tapered roller bearing.

          Don't use a hammer and chisel to put the new one on though

            I was thinking I could use a rock. What do you think?

              I had the impression you would want to reuse it for some reason...I guess your method works fine if you are replacing it.

                I plan on replacing it with a tapered roller bearing, instead of the cheap one in there now.
