Removing Pull arm bearings?

Hey SB, how have you removed the bottom clutch pull arm bearing? I have a slide hammer puller for the top, but it will not reach the bottom bearing.

We had to make a custom puller out of a spoke and a nipple... Lol...
It's really lame but it works.
Especially when you put your case in the oven and bake it a 250f for about 20 minutes.

Oscar Cota has a machinist down in S. California who is going to make a batch of some professional pullers...
I will buy two when they are available.
They will be available sometime down the road... :?

In the mean time We will continue using the spoke method and the oven..
If bikes are for kids I'll never grow up.

Look like I'll have to make something up.

For now, yes.... But don't discount the heat... It works :-)
