Will ALL the bearings from all three of these parts press out from either direction? The swing arm bearings look like they have a bigger diameter hole on the outside than on the inside. I gotta press them out today while at work and I forgot my manual. Please help!

The swing arm and the connecting link bearings sit in stepped bores.  They have to be pulled form inside to out only.

Which part is the connecting link?

The U shaped link that connects the relay arm to the frame.

Got it! Now that you say that I see there is a step down in it. Thank you!

New question. I screwed up some of the bearings in the linkage so I ordered a couple replacement Yamaha bearings. There is this yellow wax liner in the needle bearing, and I supposed to remove that?

That's the "permanent" built-in lubricant.  Personally, yes, I would remove it and pack the bearings with a good grade of marine rated high pressure grease.

That's what my thoughts were as well. All the pivot works bearings were bare and I had to pack with grease. Will do with the Yamaha ones as well, thanks for the info.
