    @Joe FYYFF The snap ring or bearing retainers main purpose is to basically
    locate that bearing along with the center spacer and the other bearing. It
    gives those parts something to press against and sit in the assess
    position. Most bikes don’t use this design but some of them will have them

    I’m replacing the bearings on my 1999 r1. I used a hammer and metal punch
    to get the bearing out on one side, It came out fine but the center spacer
    is stuck inside, and i cant get it out in order to get the other bearing
    out also. any tips on how to get my spacer unstuck???

    @cranklj – I don’t, but they are real simple. I assume you have a KTM. We
    sell a motion pro tool that makes it unadorned (part # 1271700001 on our
    site). or you can use a socket with a slightly smaller OD than the bearing.
    Pull the seals with a screwdriver and pound the bearing out with the socket
    and hammer.

    @billyman1221 Hmmm. Pivot works is usually pretty excellent stuff. It is hard to
    beat OE bearings though. i hope we get our diagrams up soon. If you can get
    the OE part #’s, i can nearly guarentee we have them in stock. Just call in
    with the OE part #.

    Some things fit in the oven too. Excellent for some ATVs. Heat the hub/carrier
    and freeze your bearings previous to installation.

    In my case, my special tool, after trying various rods that were way too
    thin, was an ancient handle from a tire jack, that had a flared end that just
    barely fit through the bearing hole with some pounding of the hammer. The
    problem is that dang spacer on the inside doesn’t leave much of a lip for
    you to bump, so the closer your rod is to the diameter to the bearing
    inside hole while subdue being able to go through, the surpass.

    can i buy and install made-in-China bearing from ebay? Is it safe? It is
    cheaper than Japanese made? Let me know. thanks

    @LukeL138 – Most the time the bearing is the same on both sides. If not, it
    should be pretty obvious which one goes on which side, because they will be
    different sizes. The only time there is an “up”, is if only one side of the
    bearing has a seal. The seal would go outwards.

    It’s hard to make a video screening how to take out bearings with tools that
    any average joe would have simply because everyone is going to have
    different tools. Like in your case you had to use an ancient rod from a tire
    jack instead of a screwdriver. Point being that everyones application is
    going to be a small different. This video is simply screening you the use of
    this tool and how it makes the job simple with less risk of ruining parts.

    A lot of the japanese copanies source parts from China and they are real
    excellent. But, there is a lot of poor stuff from there too. It depends on
    quality control and standards. Who knows what you are getting from a
    no-name brand on ebay. Could be excellent, but could be terrible. OE bearings seem to
    be the best. Check out the OE diagrams on our site.
