Hi all, i'm removing my wheels off my 03' 620ss to get them Powder Coated. And I have the brakes and rear sprocket off.

Questions

1. Do i, or how do i remove the cush guides( stiil in the rim).

2. How do i remove the bearings, safely.

3. Do i need to protect/cover anything while they are powder coated.

Cheers Andy

I've done a few non Ducati wheels. The bearings you just beat out through the opposite side (Just push the spacer over a little and use a long drift). To my knowledge, there is not a way to get them out without beating on the inner race, which means you will need to buy new ones.

I think the proper way to remove the cush pin rubbers is with a blind hole bearing remover. Even the cheap sets are a little pricey though. I know a little trick that works on pilot bearings which you might try. Fill the hole with grease and find something the same size as the hole and give it a good smack with a hammer. The grease will push the rubber out.

That's all I got.
