Not sure if I can do the job myself but will read up. It's getting the lower bearing and race out that may be beyond my skill set.
The inner bottom race is the toughest part. I used a cold chisel to lift then cut a slot with right angle grinder with 4.5” cutoff wheel. Dremel with 1” cutoff wheel might have been better but the big one was closer at hand. Cut a groove most the way through then cracked it with the cold chisel. Flat screwdriver in the slot spread and allowed the race to come off the rest of the way.
Motion Pro sells a tool for $164.95 to remove steering stem lower race that won’t grab the FJR’s race. It is handy but not necessary to press the new bearing on. https://www.motionpro.com/product/08-0544

A week ago helped a friend do a 4,000 mile 2018. Saw others use an air chisel to lift bottom race. That worked but we needed to use a file to clean up divots in aluminum bottom fork bridge where race rested.
My slotted race placed upside down is perfect for driving new tapered bearing. Provides a bigger surface to hit with your drift. Otherwise very hard to avoid hitting the cage of new tapered bearing. Need the slot to get it off else you have the same problem getting it off again.
I have a hard steel 1/2” rod about 18” long which is great for removing the outer races in the frame. A normal Craftsman 8” or 10” drift is great for driving the bottom inner bearing on the stem, and for driving the bottom outer race out. But there isn’t enough room under the bike to tap a hammer overhead to remove the top outer race. The long rod solves this problem.
A race driver helps install the new outer races. Helps drive them square. IIRC is 52mm. Other research says Timken 32006 fits which is 62mm. Haven’t held an All-Balls tapered race up to this kit. If I remember sizes correctly the correct driver is not here: https://www.harborfreight.com/bearin...-pc-63261.html
This is what I used to install the outer races: https://www.motionpro.com/product/08-0550
but it doesn’t do 62mm but I know it works.
