    Neat tool design - It will save 3 minutes over using a punch or drift.

    Get a 8" cold chisel and a Chevy fuel pump pushrod instead.

    My feeling is, ... it might not work on our bikes.

    There is VERY little of the Inside Diameter of the Race(s) exposed at the seat.

    I have struggled extracting a Lower Race on many XJ-Bikes.
    I use a 9-Inch Line-up Tool which I sharpen to a keen edge quite often.

    Ugh with the ware hocking. Why on earth would I buy a book from a website that pinches their "content" from other websites?
    Yes I know that I linked from there, but it's one thing to be a meta-site, and quite another to turn that into a book and then hock that book on other websites without paying the owner of said websites for the privilege. Do the creators of the original content get a percentage?

    if you are removing/replacing the wheel bearings if you give the center race of the bearing a rap with a hammer and wood block or extra socket that is the correct size it will loosen up the pinch on the center spacer giving you access to use a drift.

    Is there not 2 spots in the frame neck that it slightly larger to get a punch in place? Have seen that on many bikes
