1985 FZ750 Gear bearing replacement (without press or Special Tools)

After waiting for the right moment to rent a press or a gear puller I just gave up and decided to hack off the old broken bearing and sleeve it with a grinder (very carefully!!) and heat up the bearing and sleeve while the gear shaft was in the freezer for 2 hours … well it worked out well but I would suggest using a dremmel tool to cut it off next time.

now time for rebuild!
