    rp23 body eyelet bushings take out/replacement

    I got a Niner Jet 9 RDO 2012 model and it is nice but within the first two weeks the bushings on the rp23 Fox eyelet (the bottom) got huge play in them. Can someone link me on both the tool and bushings for replacement.

    I sense this is going to be a recurring issue so I might as well learn to do it myself.

    Go onto ebay. You'll find one there easy.

    That one works with either a vise or a mallet. There are more expensive ones that can be screwed, unscrewed with a wrench or allen key.

    This is what I use. Same thing as linked by CR. I use it with a 1/2 ton arbor press.

    A vice and right-sized sockets will work too. I've done that plenty of times as well.

    Maybe replace it with an Enduro needle bearing kit.


    Good luck.
