xr600r spherical bearing removal(upper shock)

'94-XR600R

Anyone have some ideas on removing those circle clips ( at the upper shock mount point and where the shock mounts to the linkage at the bottm)so the bearing can be pressed out? I'll be putting all new bearings in the rear suspension, when I get the kits, when I get those clips out. Maybe I should take it to the shop and let them use there 'honda' tools??

Have you tried a dental pick ?

those are pin bearings mine were very tight and i had to use a press to take them out,if they are not greased regularily there is a lot of rust.

i also changed swing arm bearing and collar which was distorted.

these bearings take a lot of beating so I recomend to replace all of them

and grease them good.
