Default rear wheel bearing cage destroyed and stuck

     

Trying to change the wheel bearings in my sons yz85. The outer cage appears to have a deep grove and has been thinned out to the point I can't get a purchase on it with a punch. Any tricks or ideas on how to get it out?

A blind bearing puller might be your only hope.

thanks cowboy. I don't think the bearing puller would be able to grip it it was pretty screwed up. I welded the inner race to what was left of the outer. Then hit it with a punch and big hammer. It popped right out and now my kid is back to terrorizing the neighborhood.

It will probably start picking up as spring and summer are underway now for almost all of us.

Folks in this situation without a welder, try cutting the outer race in two places with a dremmel tool and cut-off wheel. The pieces will then come off/out. When you replace the bearings do not buy Chinese bearings or you will end up with a disappointing failure real soon.
