2017 front wheel bearings


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

Currently doing a bit of work on my 2017 250 gas gas I bought earlier in the year. 

I have done the rear wheel bearings and now onto the front, but struggling on how to drive the bearings out. There is no lip to get any purchase on


I read on here the 1p trick for the rear bearings which worked a treat, but can't find anything in the front. 


Thanks for your help!

I've a 10mm steel rod , I put that through the wheel onto the inside lip of the bearing then put a flat screw driver above it and lever the rod down. While it has some tension on it belt the other end with your favourite hammer. It only has too move a couple of mm and the bearing spacer will move.

 I file two slots opposite each other in one end of the spacer big enough to allow a suitable drift to get past and onto the inner race of the bearings...usually 10mm wide so I can use 10mm dia Ali bar to just release the pressure on the spacer so it moves easily to one side.
