SOURCE: Vt250F Swing arm bearings need replacing

You need to tap the old races out with a large hammer and a drift. A steel chisel works, a punch with a flat end works better. Position the punch or chisel on the visible edge from the opposite side and hit it firmly. Move your device to the opposite edge and hit it again. You don't want to drive only one side out, twisting the race. It needs to be driven fairly evenly, close to straight out. Rarely, you have to cut the race out, if you must do that I would use a rotary tool with a cutting disc.

SOURCE: how to replace the swing

the only way to learn to swim is to dive in...find a milk study plastic milk crate to rest the bottom of the bike on and remove rear tire, bake lines everything attached to the swing arm, now you'll have to disconnect the rear shock also this can be tricky make sure it fully extended have you swing arm fully down, now just remove the bolts that hold the swing arm to the frame..if you have to remove other things to get at the bolts well nobody ever said working on motorcycles is as easy as working on bicycles its some work to accomplish whatever your trying to do especiallt the first time and you will make mistake and look around after your all done and find extra parts...that is not a good feeling especially if it a washer or bearing that you forgot to put in...i would recommend taking cell phone pictures of every step so you'll know how to do the reverse process. good luck and watch your knuckles, sometimes those bolt are on factory tight and will require breaker bars or i use long steel pipes or tubes over my wrenches after i've let it soak in liquid wrench for about an hour before i try, or you'll end up stripping it and then you'll be screwed. good luck and do me a favor if you found this the least bit helpful (i know i cant be there to walk you through it but if you can turn a wrench you can do this) please can i get a rating on my advice thanks.

Link Arms

1

Unplug the power cord. Identify the pivot points where the lower handlebars and the footpad link arms connect at each side of the machine. Use a screwdriver to remove the inside and outside elbow covers at each connection. This will expose the pivots.

2

Put a box wrench on the lock nut at the inside of one pivot and loosen the bolt with an Allen wrench. Remove the bolt and check the assembly for nylon spacers or a bearing. If no spacer is found, proceed to the next step. Replace the nylon spacers, reassemble the connection and reattach the elbow covers. Repeat this at the opposite side of the machine.

3

Have an assistant hold a deep socket against the inside face of the pivot hub. Make sure the socket is large enough to allow the bearing to pop out. Insert the point of a flat screwdriver into the outside of the hub until it contacts the bearing. Tap the handle of the screwdriver with a hammer to remove the bearing. Repeat this to remove the bearing on the opposite side.

4

Hold each bearing next to one ear and turn the inner race with your finger. If you hear grinding noises or the bearing is rough, it must be replaced. Lubricate the bearing with lithium grease and a grease gun. Replace the bearing into the hub. Reattach the lower handlebars and footpad link arms and put the elbow covers on.
Pedal Arms

1

Use a flat screwdriver to unseat the tabs that hold the front top cover in place. This will expose the flywheel and pedal arm connection points. Rotate the flywheel by hand and determine whether lubrication will accomplish the repairs. If the bearings are exposed, use a grease gun with an extension nozzle and lubricate both bearings with lithium grease. If the bearings are damaged or sealed, proceed to the next step.

2

Remove the front and side covers on the main frame. Hold the flywheel with one hand and use a box wrench to loosen the bolts that secure the pedal arms at each side of the flywheel. Pull the arms away from the flywheel and remove the bearings from each side.

3

Test the bearings as before. Lubricate exposed bearings with lithium grease and reinstall them. Sealed bearings must be replaced. Reattach the pedal arms to the flywheel. Replace the main frame covers and front top cover to complete the repairs.

Im putting new bearings in my 05 crf230f suspension linkage, but cnt figure it all out, anby help???


where to start... i'm not sure where you are in the R&R of your bearing so lets start after the rear wheel is off. remove your lower shock bolt and linkage ( mark all parts while removing them so you'll know where they go ) now remove the swingarm bolt, you'll have spacers in there so WATCH where they come from. Now you have the swing arm in your hand. remove the seals, take you punch and start to knock out the bearings be carefull not to dug into the swing arm. do the same for the linkage. grease new bearing, install the new bearings a socket is a driver install seals, spacers, swingarm, linkage ect..
