Bearing press tool
#1
Does anyone have a kp5ax bearing press tool or know where I can get hold of one? Have tried the clamp and socket badge technique but can't get it square and don't want to ruin the bearings. Can't find much on Google either

do have a beraing tool that handles quite a few bearings - whats the internal diameter on those bearings?

main thread on mine has 12mm internal diameter (minimum bore) and presses then cover 16-17mm  to 24mm diameter (min to max shoulder diameter) for inner metal face of bearings

has a few other fittings for trickier frame areas

I have a bearing press, but would have to check sizes.
I'm also happy to help, haven't met a bearing/bush I couldn't get in/out yet Wink

Would probably mean you suffering an evening in chatham though Sad

No problem Wink
It's only the Horst pivot bearings on an FSR that are interesting.
The rest are a doddle*

Thanks guys.  I had another go at it yesterday and managed to get them in without too much trouble!  Practise makes perfect i guess Smile

Bizarrely my bike seems very tall now though!  Off to check the manual to make sure i put the linkages back on in the right places  Big Grin
