Gravity Rides Everything
Most bearings are interference fit... Titus' included. Unless you see the bearing fits in a housing that is split and tightened with a screw, all of them are pressed in and must be pressed out.

I used a home made press, too.
I used a home made press to change out the bearings on my Loco Moto (4 yrs old at the time). I matched up the bearing numbers and replaced with enduros.
I did run into trouble putting the swing arm back. There were very thin spacers at the main pivot separating the swing arm from the frame pivot. I mangled them trying to slide the swing arm on. Titus told me to clamp the drop out end with a skewer to open up the pivot yoke on the swing arm. Did the trick. Its what they do on the assembly line.
