Changing bearings.

Hi. I've never changed bearings in an outrunner but have 2 motors(Extremeflight and Axi) I need to replace. Anyone have a good procedure for this. Thanks

I use geared inrunners, but also have 2 small outrunners. Once you get the motor apart, tapping the bearing out is easy. Hopefully the above link gives you enough info to get the motor apart.

Do not press the new bearing in with force on the inner race, only press the outer one. Also never let the stator "click" into place as this also causes damage.
