neck bearing install question

I think I need a mechanics help or someone with a bearing press can't get the bearing cups to seat deep enough, being unable to thread the nut... Anyone have ideas or know someone I could take the bike to (I'm in Ofallon MO)? It's for my boys '03 KLX 110. I'd rather not take to a dealer for the obvious reason (big$$$$).

Thanks for reading!

It's hack, but go and buy a piece of steel pipe, the EXACT diameter of your bearing race. Use the old race, put it on the bearing, and then use a sledge to tap it on. A bigger hammer with more gentle blows will work better and keep it true compared to a smaller hammer.
