Changing bearings

I'm changing the wheel and rear chain wheel bearings on an '02 that I'm about to sell -

Any tips on:

tools you've found friendly ?

whether changing the bearing in the rear wheel chain sprocket bearing (???) is tricky or not ?

They're pretty easy. I used a socket extender to ban out the old ones.

Then refrigerate the new bearings and tap them in by the outer race nice and easy.

Did mine with a long drift punch and hammer, I didn't do the sprocket carrier bearing at the time but I will when I put the new chain on.

i've used this from harbor freight to change bearings on about 6 motorcycle wheels now. works pretty good. seems to be sturdy enough. i did a few with punches and stuff from the other side. this works better.

Haa, refrigerate em - I'll do that, it sounds like an excellent idea - I was gonna buy a bearing puller kit, but lotsa fella's suggest using tools - the extension bit sounds interesting - I'll take a look at drift punches too - if they don't work, I'll def buy the puller kit.

The '02 is sitting being renovated, so I can play with it -
