Split the ring

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Fettling -

Any tips on re­mov­ing this Kawasaki ZXR750 bear­ing cone on the bot­tom yoke? It’s be­ing a right pain, and I can’t shift it. I’ve tried heat to no ef­fect. Si­mon Chan­dler, PS Face­book Group

Pete O’dell says: Take a mini grind­ing disc in a Dremel or sim­i­lar ro­tary tool and cut across the ring. They’re un­der quite a lot of ten­sion and some­time this alone is enough for it to crack and let go. If it isn’t, give it a lit­tle help with a cold chisel and a ham­mer once you’ve cut a slot in it. That should do the trick.
