Swing arm bearing removal

Does anyone know how, or have the tools to pull the bearings in the gsxr swing arm?


I have a press but that won't work, it would just press them in farther...

could you tap from on the outside enough to knock out the bearing on the far side, remove the spacer and then tap from the inside to get the other out?

I tried tapping the spacer into the bearing to knock it out, but its to small to push it out, and to big to slide out.

It's on there pretty good.

what type of bearings are they? you probably should go ahead and plan on buying new ones...my needle bearings were destroyed, and I ended up taking the swingarm to Patrick for him to get the bearing races out.

Quick search gave me this...you can always try the two socket method. One socket ( or a pipe nipple) which is larger than the brg. OD. One socket which fits the other side bearing. Take a piece of Redi-rod ( All thred) and put it thru both sockets bearings and swingarm. Install nuts and washers and start tightening. The small socket will push everthing thru the large socket ( or pipe nipple)..


never done it, but sounds like it could work :dontknow:

i've used a similar method...and that produced little results. I've had best results using a 5 lb sledge and a bearing removal tool, or a press and a bearing removal tool.

that would compress them inward, correct?

I need something that will push them out, or pull them out.

from how I understood it will push everything in one end and out the other b/c of the larger opening...I could be wrong. want me to come and swing the sledge hammer while you hold the frame?

GQ* that method would work, but I found it was a PITA and didn't work in my situation.

He use a bearing puller?
Was it cheaper than buying new? i might just be worth buying new i suppose :/:
