I have completely disassemble my R60/2 and I used a blind bearing puller on many occasions . I would recommend this for anyone that is planing to work extensively on your own bike.

I've had the experience a

I've had the experience a couple times now where the rear camshaft bearing doesn't come out with the camshaft and won't drop out with substantial heating of the case. Which bearing puller(s) have you had good luck with? (Links/pictures?)

More on these pullers

The local mechanic uses a shop tool supplier from Montreal http://www.importationsthibault.com were I ordered a set for around $250.00 . I looked it up again and they have changed the inventory. When you google blind bearing puller image they show lots of images all made in Asia somewhere all with the same colored plastic cases ...so I'd expect they are the same quality. I did put a little heat on the case in order to get that particular bearing out. I have used this type of puller on both the front swing arm bearings and as well the rear. I went with a set that has 12 sizes and found that you can use every one on the /2 's somewhere . Hope this is helpful.
