    getting bearing out of Kingheadz mount

    I can't say enough good things about the Kingheadz mount! but between runs, I like to pull some bearings out and not only clean and reoil them, but flip them over just to make it spin in the other direction so they ware evenly. probably not necessary, but I'm OCD and it's just something I like to do

    but does anyone have issues with the bearing not wanting to come out of the Kingheadz mount? this little booger is in there and doesn't want to budge! any tips, that doesn't involve destroying the bearing?

    uknow what i had the same problem with my motor mount! but in my case that bearing blew up and had to get the outer ring out. it was pretty hard to get out but i finally did with a large screw driver.

    warming / heating the mount would also cause expansion that should help too.
    Using something that puts pressure on the outer race rather than the inner race would be a plus.

    you can't exactly get to the outer race to push it out...

    That is a great idea using the shaft and bearing adapter like a bearing puller!

    You could use a socket. Your idea was great!
