I'm shortly going to remove the hub from Sharon's Brutale S, for maintenance / inspection and am also swapping the shitty bearing for one of Noel's.
My question is; How do I safely remove the old roller bearing without damaging the needle bearing or hub??
I'm planning on doing this myself, with the wisdom and insight of many forum members and posts. Without this help I wouldn't attempt it.
I'm also making my own bearing press! Not sure if it will work, but I'll let you all know. :idea:
Thanks Guys.

Dave.

I use a workshop press.But you can tap out the bearing with a hammer and punch if you are very careful and tap it out evenly.

Hi Dave you can remove it with a 'home made' bearing extractor utilising a couple of 'plate spacers' and length of 'threaded rod' and a couple of nuts

Thanks for the info.
Mitchy, what do you use for a punch? Wood, soft metal or plastic?
Brian, what do you mean by 'plate spacers'?
Sorry if I'm being a dumb Scot again, but I don't want to cock anything up!!

Steel or brass doesn't matter.Just tap it out evenly.Do you have a bench vice?If you do just sit the hub on the vice with some protection under it,so not to damage the hub and tap away.
