With a good pull?

Bearings out, wheels with powder coaters. I have to admit that I let a garage remove the bearings as I was struggling.
I have been looking at the bearings that were removed and they look and feel fine so not going to bother to replace.

Colin - did you tell him you wanted to reuse the bearings? Been a while since I changed mine but if he knocked them out by hitting the inner races they are probably ruined.

Glenn,
He used a press to get them out. There are no signs of any damage and they rotate smoothly with no play.

Depends where he made contact. You might not be able to feel the damge. Might be worth just checking that he pressed them out via the outer race.

for me I wouldnt re-use the wheel bearings on a sports bike and I would buy them from a bearing stockist not a m/c shop. I tell them what the application is and the bearing ref which is usually etched in the outer race face.

I get mine from http://www.ashleypower.co.uk/ but thats only because we use them at work and they deliver to the office.

Yesterday at the dirt bike show at Stoneleigh Park I saw a company specialising in sprucing up wheels http://www.central-wheel.co.uk/ I know they are only going to exhibit their best products but they looked fantastic.

NEW bearings fitted to the front wheel. I used the bearings in the freezer trick and I have to say they went in with very little effort.

I was not happy with the standard of the paint finish on the rear wheel and the powder coaters have agreed to strip it and re-paint it and I pick it up next Saturday.
