chewy- It takes a bit with chisels. I did use a heat gun, but worked the perimeter with lager chisels as the bearing slid off more. I'm sure it'd be easier with the right puller, it will need some narrow jaws. I'm sure some people would cringe at the way I removed the big motha...

Possibly I didn't heat it enough. I've seen Gunter Wurst, use a gas grill to heat up a tranny and flop it over and low and behold all the gears dropped out.......

Ok, back to your regularly scheduled program..

Did more finish work on the guard, completely welded the four rods together at the top back of the guard, just below the saddle bag mount. Can't see how it's finished. Aslo welded a mounting tab for the muffler. Welded a nut on the back side of the tab, then a stainless button head bolt to attach it..

Also made a mounting tab for the rear of the muffler, just bar stock w/ two nuts tack welded on it. You can see where the muffler name plate is, it was upside down so hit it w/ a wire brush remove the lettering.

Next project to finish welds w/ a sander then satin black powder coat.
