Steering stem bearing

Recommended Posts

Tried to take the steering bearing off the stem with a punch and the cage exploded. I had to cut it off and now the inner race is stuck on the stem. I tried to wedge a chisel punch in between the race and the triple clamp but it wouldn't budge. put a heat gun on it for a little bit and tried to hit it where the lip is at the top of the race...a piece of that lip broke off. What else can I try or what am I doing wrong?

I usually gouge it with a small cutoff wheel in a die grinder for a spot to set a chisel on 2 opposite side and then split it woth the chisel and a hammer. Always works for me...

I was looking at mine the other day wondering how in the world to get it off.  I am guessing if Kroynon's way doesn't work you could put a a small round burr grinder on your dremel and cut a line down the side.
