I need to replace bearings in a front wheel of a 1997 Honda VFR750f. The last time I replaced bearings I did it with a drift and a socket that was the same size as the OD of the new bearing.
I want to get the correct tools for the job, and wanted some suggestions on a motorcycle wheel bearing removal tool and a motorcycle wheel bearing press kit.
Thanks in advance for your help

This is the wheel bearing puller I use:

It works quite well. For driving wheel bearings in I've just been using a socket of approximately the right size. I've probably done a dozen or so bearings so far in this fashion. (i.e. don't let your friends know you know how to fix their motorcycles.

I found that exact one and it has the correct size adapters for the bearings I want to replace.
Next is to find a press for the installation of the new ones. I found a couple of different driver sets for pounding them in, but would much rather have a press tool that guarantees they go in at the correct angle.

You know, that exact tool came up in a few of the initial searches that made when looking for the wheel bearing tools. I opted for the slide hammer.
