How do you get the front wheel bearings out on a raptor? I have been trying to pound them out for hrs, and nothing seems to be working..Any tips or ideas? Also which way do u hit the swingarm bearings out? they wont budge either,and the inner seals on each part(2 seperate sections for each bearing)the seals seem to be like worn right to it..they wont pop out..it jus coming out in pieces...Thanks

if they wont come out with a little heat take a mig welder and weld a bead around the outer part of the bearing then they will practicalyl fall out

heat wprks really well in this situation just pry the seal out, heat the aluminum bearing carrier up wiht a torch not the bearing and they should tap out very easily and if not weld a bead around the outer race of the bearing and tap them out. this usually work very well
