:eek: On my 06 yzf450 Iam getting ready to repack the bearings but the needles or pins dont come out like on the connecting rod or A-arm. The swingarm bearings are in what looks to be in a enclosed race to where you cant take the pins out one by one. So how can you regrease them with out having to press them out?:applause:

I am not sure what you are experiencing, but I removed them with a rare earth magnet. They came right out and regreased them no problem.

I used a steel pick. It has a smaller point than a tooth pick. Bought them at Home Depot. They look somewhat like Dentistry tools. Be careful not to scratch anything while picking/prying them out!
