Hi guys well just today done the front bearings/discs/pads and new tyre nothing wrong with the bearings but as the wheel was out thought that i would change them tried the usuall method hammer chisel/punch cant get enough grip on the bearings to move them then came up with an idea that worked brilliantly using a length of threaded rod i got a inch long tube same size as the hole with a hole through its centre place it on the threaded rod with a nut to stop it falling off push it through one side of the wheel and knock the bearing out simple and saved me loads of time you do need to hold the rod to one side to get some grip on the bearing but boy does it work well

Good work there. The one time I've done this on a gl1500 I was able to get a cold chisel onto the lip of the bearing race.

I tried that for about an hour using different punches chisels and anything else i thought would do the job just could not get near the lip to get any impact on it the rod idea worked immediately

Oh i changed the tyre using the vise
