I have posted pictures with a brief description of what each is showing of the gl1200 bearing tools I made. I have to give Jluvs2dive credit I took his idea and made it work for me, This is why I love this forum/site.

I had a spare front tire laying around so I pulled bearing out to get the pics for other to use. Hope this helps someone as it has me, saved a ton of time, money and headaches.

Ride Safe, Ray

I want to say, thanks for the personal demonstration.
Good creative ideas are what this forum is all about.

That's excellent Ray, simple and well thought out. I'll move this to the reference forum later in the week once more people have seen it here.

I did the same thing, only I just cut a single slot instead of two, and I used a screwdriver to expand the bolt instead of a punch.

Hey GS, I saw your how to and it is great. I found for me using the punch pushed all 4 sides out and gripped better. But that is what is great about this site finding and sharing different ways to get the job done correctly and at a cost we all can live with
