    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.
