Noob question on changing needle bearings

Recommended Posts

I'm changing the linkage bearings on my 2000 XR650R for the first time.  I've got the triangular linkage out and have removed everything except the cases of the needle bearings.  All of them were rusted and dry with no grease left.  I've tried tapping with a 1" round bar but they won't budge.  I don't want to hit them too hard- what is the recommended removal procedure?  I don't have a press.

The video has a couple different methods. You could soak them in penetrating oil before trying to remove. Note that number 37 in the attached parts sketch are double bearings and may each bottom out on a shoulder. If so, they won't press through.
