Awesome tool, I used my press to remove and install the steering stem bearings. This is sooooo much easier than trying to chisel or use the Motion Pro steering bearing remover. This tool is also by far easier than trying to file/grind the bearing off. And there is minimal damage risk with the Tusk tool plus cost less. I have not tried to beat the bearing on using this tool and a hammer so not sure about that process. I was a little nervous about using the press to press out the stem/bearing however my fears where swept away once complete. As long as you support the triple clamp with shims the pin pops right out. And of course installation was a snap.
i watched a video on youtube and saw a guy using this tool and after using a hammer and chisel and ruining a bearing i decided to get the tool ,talk about a good decision the tool worked like a dream ,the bearing went right on without a hitch i would give this tool a 10 star rating if i could . i would highly recommend this tool
This is about as fool proof as it can get. No instructions were included so if you can't figure this tool out, it's probably best if you don't work on your own bike. It took longer to open the package than to install the bearing. Piece of cake.
Notch on bearing end of tool gave me some concern if the bearing adapters would sit flat and if the bearing would drive straight down the steering stem. Upon further inspection the bottom of the tube is still flat so I tried it out. The adapter was a little difficult to install, but fit tight and flat. Bearing was installed easily and properly. Only concern is quality control of tube when they cut it.
I bought this when I was in a pinch, and it worked amazingly, I might have been using it a little wrong, but worked nonetheless. Also very strong, after using it to get the bearing on, it looked still brand new.
This is the jam when you need to install some bearings in your steering stem. Works as described and made the job easier that I expected it to be. Hands down I am so happy I purchased one and it is a quality item. It'll be in my tool kit my entire life. 10/10
The kit is basic but effective. I wish it came with a real case to keep the parts together, but the price reflects it. It was cheaper for me to buy this tool than to pay a mechanic to press the bearing on.
I debated this purchase, knowing there were guides to do this other ways, but I'm trying to build a decent toolbox and this seemed like a fair cost-to-helpful tool. I'm glad I bought it, it made the job easy. If you're handy you can probably do this job without it, but man, the right tool just makes life simple.
