Fella brought in a wheel off his Strom that one of the rear bearing completely came apart. Trick was to get the outer race of the hub. The bearing was completely separated and the outer race was sitting flush with the lip you see in the bore. Absolutely nothing to gain purchase on. All of the claw extractors I have were too thick to even begin to get a hold of the thing. Ground down a piece of steel, kinda tapped it down into the bore of the outer race, and tacked it into place. That gave me a nice surface to drive it out from the other side. Popped right out.

The other welder trick is just weld a bead around the inside (in the ball channel) of the outer race, as it cools it shrinks the race and it will fall out
