Any of you gents know a proper solution for removing the swing arm bearing?
I can’t see a way of getting behind it with either a drift or a blind puller because of the step on the inside edge. I’d rather not just start battering it and risk damage to the swing arm.
Cheers,
Stu

Well I got the swing arm bearings out... had to put a blind puller in from the outside. Then put a long drift through from the other side and apply a large hammer.

Took some effort but all four came out and no damage to the machined faces on the swing arm...

Hi Stu, Have you considered adding grease fittings to the swing arm. I did it to my bikes. Send me your home email address and I'll send a picture on where to put the fittings. I don't know how to post pictures to this site.

That’s a good idea Greg ... email address on its way.

just discovered that the radiator is leaking too .... more expense ?
