For years I used a screwdriver or cold chisel to remove steering stem races with no problems at all. 20-30 minutes and the old races were knocked out and new ones ready to be installed. That was until this week when I decided to replace my stem bearings on the RM250. I struggled to even catch the lip let alone drive the race out... and the upper... well forget about it. So i decided to fork out the $33 clams and buy the Park Tool bearing race remover.... It worked like a champ and worth every penny. 2 moderate hits with the hammer and each race was out. total time, 2 seconds each... If you get the chance pick one up from Motosport, its worth it for sure.
