    Haro Xeon bearing removal

    Hi guys,
    Does anyone know how to remove the bearings at the BB for a Haro Xeon? This is the big bearing around the BB - 6809RS. Is there any specific tool I need to use, or is there a special tool-less trick to removing it?

    Time for a bearing change, and I can't figure out how to remove these.

    Don't have the bike with me now, but here's a picture I grabbed from the web. The bearing behind the bottom linkage at the BB, open it up and the bearing is exposed.



    This is the bearing

    I'll try to get a much detailed photo when I get back.

    My approach would be remove crank arms, loosen the allen bolt pinch bolt between the bearing and pivot. Remove the BB bearings and cups which most likely are holding the large around BB bearings in place. You may also have to remove the bolt through the pivot to slide the link plates off the large bearings.

    Nice pics

    Thanks for the reply, actually I already did managed to strip the whole pivot last weekend until the bearings are exposed. There's nothing holding the bearings in that I can see after removing the pivot cups, I think there might be red locktite in place making it so hard to pry out. Its just so tight I can't pry it out. So I assembled it back until I can figure out how to take the bearings out - hence the photo of the assembled pivots.

    I'm thinking of getting this tool to pull it out.

    That puller wont work for this application because their is nothing for the center bolt to press against so the two legs can pull the bearing. You could get creative and make up a stop but you risk damaging the BB cup threads. Since the inner diameter "ID" of the bearing is butting against the BB you could tap the back side of the bearing with a drift, long bolt, etc around the outer diameter "OD" and the bearing will come off. Just be sure to work around the bearing not just one or two sides you want to push it off evenly.

    I did cross post your question to Haros fb http://www.facebook.com/HaroBikesMTB

    Update - I went ahead and bought the bearing puller, and managed to pull the bearings in a few minutes without much effort. For leverage I used an old square tapered BB.

    Problem solved!

    Sweetness

    If I looked closer the puller feet can be rotated 180 degree

    What took so long on your side

    Actually I procured the tool a long time already, but right after that I got a sweet deal on a SC Nomad full bike.

    So the frame went into storage until last night, out of a whim I decided to try out my idea with the square taper BB.

    Now trying to decide what to do with it, too many bikes in the apartment right now.
