    Always! And we'll see. GOtta lot of sentimental value on Ol' Duchess so part of me would shed a tear over a new girl. Another, much larger part would be stoked to get 27k for free though!

    The race to invent a better mouse trap rages on.

    Sunday is looking good for a dust free, fire free, sunny ride. Time to mount up the winter knobbies.

    Is that an invite or just an observation?

    Does indeed look promising tomorrow!
    And with my brake drama behind me, I think I have one or two more rides left in my rear tire.
    I'm going to check out Prairie mtn. Hopefully, the fog will lift a little earlier.
    Hope everyone gets out
    WINTERS COMING!

    Hi. I've been lurking for awhile, and recognize there's a lot of motorcycle maintenance experience in this forum. I have a question about how to remove wheel bearings from my CRF230l. The bike developed a groan (from the rear wheel) that was noticeable when wheeling the bike in/out of the garage. Being 10 years old and in need of new tires, i figured I'd change out the front and rear wheel bearings as well. I looked at a couple of youtube videos - one guy used a (Harbor Freight) hammer bearing puller and another guy punched the wheel bearing(s) out wth a screwdriver and a hammer. I thought I'd try the screwdriver/hammer approach first, but after removing the dust seals, there isn't enough of a gap/lip between the (inner) distance collar and bearing to get a screwdriver on the bearing... from the other side.

    The crf230l maintenance manual says you need a bearing remover head, 15mm 07746-0050400 and bearing remover shaft 07746-0050100 to remove the front wheel bearings... and another bearing remover head, 17mm 07746-0050500 to remove the rear wheel bearings.

    Will the HF hammer bearing puller work for my situation? Can it be expanded to pinch just the bearing and not the distance collar? Or Should I drag the wheels into Fred's Honda and ask them to pop out the bearings? OR is there another magical approach?

    THANKS for the advice!

    Hey 1Way, get a long round punch, reach inside down almost to the bearing you want to push out, then hit the punch sideways. This will push that tube between the bearings sideways and give you a little ledge on the bearing to grab onto. You can then just tap the bearings out. Heating the hub helps a lot. No special tools needed.

    Well, that was interesting. In the end inexperience was my folly. I was able to move the distance tube/collar aside a little and move the bearing a smidge but no more, even after heating the hub with a propane torch. In the end, Harbor Freight took me for $56... and after a few minutes had the bearings pulled. It took quite a bit of effort and heat from the torch. Needless to say I needed to have exerted 2-3x the force wirh the punch and screwdriver method. Also after getting it apart i see what you meant about moving the tube - looks like there's at least 1/8 - 1/4" one could move it to get a lip on the bearing. Lesson learned if I ever need to change or grease a bearing on the trail! Thx!

    The more you do, the more you learn, especially on bearing removal and precision fitting parts.
    Hard to say how much patience you had, but it takes little taps on the drift punch not to cock the bearing in their bores.
    A dirt free and lubed bore is also key.
    If you look at your bore with the bearing out, you might see damage to the bore from the bearing cocked or mis aligned in the bore.

    Any of you ff’s up for a ride this weekend? In particular, I was hoping to ride Burnt Woods ridge once more this year, although it doesn’t really matter - every ride in the sun is a bonus this time of year, eh?

    I think a hooky day on Friday is appropriate. The fall colors on hwy 34 are the best in the last five years.

    Can’t argue with that! I took quick spin up Woods Ck and Harris road - the colors are fading, but still gorgeous.
    Headed over to Alsea falls tomorrow afternoon to ride mtn bikes - bonus weather for sure!
