I've been wrestling with this fucking thing for 2 hours.. The original bearing casing fell apart... the only thing left is ...well the casing.. and that's not letting go of the wheel.. I've damn near stripped the entire circumference of the bearing casing...

ANY SUGGESTIONS PLEASE?! KNOW ANYONE WHO CAN PUT THIS BEARING OUT OF ITS MISERY AND JUST YANK IT OUT FOR ME?!

this is the kind of bike i've got..

Is it the bearing race thats stuck? You can try a slide hammer with the puller jaws on the end... Bearing pullers are usually available to borrow from your local Autozone.

Heres a pic of a pocket bike bearing... which part is stuck?

Nate beleive he's refering to the out side sleeve on the bearing. I had this happen once before and I had to tap it out with a screw driver. Took forever cause it kept binding on the wheel. Just keep taping it through all around the edge of the sleeve till you can grab it with the pullers from the other side. least thats what I did.

If I reading this properly, then a screwdriver may not be the best bet... If you can get through on one side of the wheel, a fitting socket will more evenly allow you to punch it out. Kaneda hook me up with some more info!

can you tap it out from the other side? I've used a big flat blade, sprayed some wd40, and shimmied them out before. I froze the replacement when installing it. Slid right in.

I used a big assed socket as the bearing driver. It works, you just have to be careful.

I don't know a damn thing about pocketbike wheels, but for dirt bike wheels, I heat the hub with a torch to expand it. Say to 200 degrees or so, then drive it out from the other side with a punch. Heat is your friend if you can use it.

I once had to remove a bearing race from an Intruder 800 wheel. The design of the wheel made it damn near impossible to knock it out from the other side. I had to use a dremel to cut the race in half and then chisel it out

Much tapping from the other side and even more patience. Mine took a couple of hours too tapping all the way around and you can't even really see it more. A couple hours later you ar surprised when it falls. Good tip to keep the relacement in the freezer while you do this.
