Hi Den, Yes, Steve's bearing remover is designed for bearings that you can get to from the other side. I needed a puller for the bearing that resides in the clutch cover that supports the left end of the crankshaft. It is a blind hole bearing. It just so happens that the blind hole puller can also b...

Hi Den,
Mine looks different from Steve's but accomplishes the same thing.
I also paid a lot more for mine.
Steve's is a good deal.

Well I put the heat to the hub and squirted Kroil in while it was hot to get it to penetrate better then repeated the process and the bearings came out pretty easily. Didn't require much heat either. Will be replacing with sealed bearings from Steve so he can buy more clothes for "Bevel Baby" Grace ...

Hi All, Thanks for the replies. Rick, with the spacer fitting quite snuggly in between the bearings I could not even get anything to "bite" on the inner race from the opposite side. I am not a big fan of this prcedure either. This is why I have a blind hole bearing puller. This puller has never fail...

Wheel bearings? I give up!!

I know someone here has had the same issue so I'm polling the collective minds for guidance. I am in need of replacing the wheel bearings in the rear wheel on my 750GT. Not the cush drive just the smaller bearings in the wheel. I have a blind hole bearing puller that has never failed to remove a bea...

I checked some other photos I had of the rims I posted and neither of them had "Made in Italy" on them.
The rear rim on my bike does have "Made in Italy" on it.
The stamping on it is different from yours though.
Will post pics when I can.

OK, I'll start. Here's a rear that I don't think I have all of the stamping showing http://baddean.smugmug.com/photos/177403053_gxhHu-M.jpg And here's a front.

Hi All, I've been watching this thread with interest as I have just been in this area on my bike. My sprocket nut runs a little loose with no ill effect and no oil leakage. I would like some one to explain to me how the sprocket being kept tight keeps oil from getting out. You have an oil seal in th...

Back on the street.
Great forum.

I've seen so many of these with the dent in the left muffler that I'm convinced it is because of the use of that incredibly useless side stand at some point.

Well the bearing was hard to turn because the inner spacer was pressed against the inner race when the bearing was seated. So, I removed the bearing (again) and enlarged the hole in the spacer to clear the inner race on the bearing. Problem solved http://baddean.smugmug.com/photos/249580889-M.jpg ht...

Thanks Den and Steve, Den you have come to the rescue again. While you are rescuing maybe you or someone else can help explain the bearing situation that I have? I removed this bearing from the clutch cover because it was rough to turn and thought I should replace it. Once I got it out, it spun free...

Thanks Steve,
Got into it today and found that the clutch nut was indeed tight and that the problem probably occured during the PO ownership and was corrected.
I guess I am just now getting the remains of what was in there. A couple more oil changes and I should see it clearing up.

Bearing availability and removal? UPDATE Pics

Or cross reference for the bearing that resides in the clutch cover on a 750GT. Part Number 75155.2054.
It needs to be replaced.
Also, does the case need to be heated to get the bearing out.
Thanks in advance, Dean

UPDATE Oil quiz, (pics)

Well the flecks of metal in the oil are not brass but aluminum. (See other "quiz" thread) Looking at them through the oil made them look brass in color. This is where they came from but I don't know what caused it http://baddean.smugmug.com/photos/245139751-M.jpg http://baddean.smugmug.com/photos/24...
