Stuck Steering Head Bearings
Has anyone got some tips for removing the lower tripple clamp bearings. The top races were not a problem and even removing the race from the frame came out easily with some heat. However the bottom races are both proving difficult.
The race in the frame is set so there is basically no lip to allow anything to get a grip and drive it out (I use an old axle which works a treat).
The other side of the race on the bottom tipple clamp is even worse. the little bugger is protected by a plastic and metal flange which I have cut away to allow some access but there is still no lip to drive anything on to get the thing off. I heated the bearing but am rather cautious of the alloy on the bottom of the clamp...
Does anyone have any tricks in this area? The offender in question is an '85 Tenere
