I'm going to need to get into steering head bearings for my 84 R80gspd. Been posting here

SOLO LOBO pointed at site with race removals - wondering if anyone has them to loan?

If not, I'll order and we will.

Brad or Jenna has a welder ... I've done it with Brads welder. You simply put a small bead directly in the center of the race, and do it all the way around. The heat warps the race and it pops out. I was skeptical ... but damn it ... it worked.

EDIT: I have Jenna's welder

lift

Not a loan... Does anyone have a table lift that they want to sell? My back & neck need all of the assist that they can get.

I see that Harbor Freight has their MC table lift on sale for $299 this weekend. I hear that it's a pretty good value.

Thanks. Yup, that's what got me thinking. That's as low as that lift gets, too.

George, I have a "Big Red" lift that is very similar to the harbor freight except it's a scissor. A few "conversions" on the HB lift and it really isn't a bad deal. I'd sell you mine, but as soon as I do that....my bike will explode!

Oh, get a wheel chock while you're there.....it helps a lot on that lift.

No need to go all the way round ime. about a 1/4 way round for headstem and swingarm bearings.
To go all the way around increases the chances of failure for a novice race welder, like welding the bearing in there.
A good dremel can fix a lot of stuff, but who wants to go there.

Whoops! I do! It's sitting on top of my tool chest. I used it a couple times last week on the new Guzzi. I'll have to bring that by soon.

Driveshaft removal tool

Hi All, I live up in the Dahlonega area and need to get my driveshaft out of my swing arm. I saw the old post (2 years old!) and wondered if that person might still be around. Thanks in advance.
