So I am replacing my bearings during my tear down but have run into a problem. According to the manual it calls for a special tool to press the bearing out of the split cases, well this said tool is $250 bucks! Is there an alternate way or trick to getting the bearings out with using this special tool! And my local Suzuki shop is not willing to lend out the tool so that is not an option.

Sam are those metric numbers? Also what are the numbers on the right? It looks like the pic is vilifying them off. I will get my brother to machine them if I can get the info he needs

ID = internal diameter
OD = outside diameter

All numbers mm and circle with line through means diameter :thumbup

The ring needs to split so the shells can be compressed before pressing into the cases.

Why are you replacing those shells anyway ? It's extremely rare that they wear outside the tolerances.

Well now that I am looking at the thread on my computer instead of my phone the picture is a better view! Anyway I am replacing the connecting rod bearings, so I figured why I was in there I might as well replace the case bearings as well. If I can get my SV rods fixed then I will use those instead of the TL rods. But thanks to Tillerdog for fixing my threads on my crank, I was able to save my crank! I will send pics of the case shells and get your advice to change them or not!

They do look worn but check with a micrometer to confirm :thumbup

Well the pics are kind of miss leading. And I am not to sure if they are good or bad. Sam told me to measure them but I would like to use a SV crank and didn't feel comfortable using them after running the TL crank. Not to mention I already have new bearings so i might as well use them. I just ain't having much luck finding a replacement crank(TL or SV).

Yes I have my photos that used to be on my Photobucket account before they started charging and everybody closed their accounts.

Drop me a message with your email or FB name and I can send you them.
