    Removing Steering Head Bearing

    Anyone here have a tool to pull the lower outer race of the steering head bearing? Or a good method to pull it out? Managed to knock the top one out using a screwdriver but the bottom one is slightly corroded and seems to be seized in there.

    Just use boiling water in a cut down plastic container.....first check the stem for a cutout , usually the size of a pin punch, one on either side of stem tube..use a parallel drift to punch it out..IE 3/8" extension bar sq drive end.

    Unfortunately no cutout for a punch/drift and the angle of the tube on the r6 is pretty crappy. Can't even get a 5mm screwdrive to catch the lip. Had to use 2 screwdrivers - 1 from underneath to catch the lip and the other screwdriver from the top of tap on the second screwdriver.

    Will try out the boiling water advice... cheers

    CO2 (fire extinguisher) chilling will cause shrinkage, if used in combination with heating it might help you to break it free.
    The only thing wrong with a perfect ride to work is that you end up at work.

    Got welder? run a bead or just half a dozen spots arounf the inside of the race, weld shrinks as it cools breaking bearing free and gives to something to catch your drift on
