Re: [Honda-C70] After rebuilding my whole bike, I need a mechanic for the bearings


What part of the world are you in?
I bought a blind bearing puller cheap from a guy selling cheap tools off the back of his van. Does any of the auto supply houses
near you loan tools? the O' Reilly just up the road from me loans tools with a deposit.
Are your bearings seal or open face, have you tried to clean them? The original design was open face so you did not remove them to
clean and regrease. You just removed the wheel from the bike, removed the seal from the wheel and cleaned the bearing and hand repacked them.

Subject: [Honda-C70] After rebuilding my whole bike, I need a mechanic for the bearings

Okay so my bike is all up & running again after 2 months of dicking around, but I have a problem: my bearings are going out & instead of repacking them I figure I SHOULD replace them-- the rear wheel has 7K miles on it & the front has 3K but apparently it was an abusive 3K miles as it's worse than the rear.

So, knowing it'd probably be impossible to get my hands on a bearing removal tool for something this small AND with my previous luck with bearings, I was wondering how much it would cost for a mechanic to pack & swap them for me, bearings provided by me; Front set, rear set, drive flange bearings.
