Where to get wheel bearings installed

I have new bearings for the rear wheel of my dirt bike, where can I get them installed on the SW side, and how much will it cost?

If you want, a machine shop can do it- but I've always done it myself.

How? I thought you needed a press.

If you are carefull you can do it your self with a couple differnt drifts and a hammer.

If you don't feel comfortable doing it your self have a shop do it.

Any bike shop. Just don't expect them to drop everything to get on it.

I don't know about dirtbike bearings, but with my bike you can use a perfect size socket and rubber mallet. Just make sure that the bearing goes straight in you are applying the pressure to the outer most race. Take your time, and it should be no problem to do it yourself.

Nope, don't need a press. In the past I've used dead-blow hammer (you know, the ones with steel shot in the head and a plastic covering) and an old socket that matches the OD of the bearing and very carefully drive the bearing in. Nowadays I use a bearing driver, which really isn't much different but it helps keep the bearing straight as you drive it in. Bearing drivers are usually pretty cheap and easy to get- Northern Tool has them I believe as do many automotive shops and tool stores.
