Remove wheel bearings

How can I remove the wheel bearings? Is it true I need a press tool and is this something I can rent from say Auto zone? Also are the risk high on damaging them if I was to do it myself? Last time I took it to Eximports for them to do it. I think I had to replace the bearings like 3 months later.... :eh:

Anyways... I am gonna send my wheels to Scoot for him to powdercoat and need to get these things off. Is there anywhere local on the SW side that might have the knowledge on doing this besides Yamaha. Last time they charged me close to $80 -$100 i think to replace the bearings in the front wheel only. :eh:

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help in this matter. :icon_smil

I had to have my bearings removed also. Actually i destroyed the bearings and could not get the outer race out. I took it to a machine shop and he welded a rod to the race and banged it out. I have heard several people could not get the outer race on the steering stem out and what they did was just to weld a small bead on the race itself. when it cooled it fell out.
Later

I was planning on doing the same with my rims and was told that it is hard as to get the bearings out without damaging them. hey Los!If you find someone that doesnt charge an arm and a leg let me know so I can get mine done to. I will see if scoot can powder coat mine too.good luck and pm me if you find someone!

Los,
Front or rear wheel?
The front is easy. The rear on your R6 has a needle bearing, and you pretty much have to destroy it to get it out, then you have to cut out the outer race sleeve.
Bring it by and we can do it for you while you wait, and I've got the replacement bearings in stock. It's around $60.00 for everything, icluding new rear bearings and seals, hub bearings too.

gixr101, we can remove yours easily without damaging them, it's less than $20.00 for the whole job.
