The Bearing Press & Extraction Tool (BPET) is designed for the ‘Home Mechanic’ for use on ‘LINKAGE BEARINGS’, however it still works on many pivot and hub bearings (adaptors & kits are being developed for hubs & pivot bearing use)
Instructions for Use
Firstly ensure you have the correct RRP Bearing Kit to match the bearings you intend to insert / extract. You can identify which kit you need either by reading the bearing number written on the rubber seal, or you can measure the inner bore race and outer race of the bearing.
NOTE: Extracting Bearings (RED adaptors) and Inserting Bearings (BLUE adaptors) - SOLD SEPARATELY
The BPET is only suitable for frames with flat surfaces to press against.
Ideal for the competent home mechanic who has reasonable knowledge and experience of working on bikes.
Designed to extract and insert linkage bearings, however the tool can also be used to press and extract bearings on hubs and freehub bodies.
(NB: The handle arms have been reduced in length and thickness to decrease the torque available reducing the risk of damage from misalignment / incorrect installation.)
