The Bearing Press & Extraction Tool (BPET) is designed for use on ‘LINKAGE BEARINGS’, however it still works on many pivot and hub bearings.
This tool was designed for the competent home mechanic who has reasonable knowledge and experience of working on bikes. Although it is understandably finding it's way into the workshop of many local bike shops. This tool is designed to extract and insert linkage bearings, however the tool can also be used to press and extract bearings on some hubs and freehub bodies

Firstly, ensure you have the correct RRP Bearing Kit to match the bearings you intend to insert / extract (see list below). You can identify which kit you need either by reading the bearing number written on the rubber seal, or you can measure the inner bore race and outer race of the bearing (as shown below) and match it to our list below
(NB: the handle arms have been reduced in length and thickness to decrease the torque available reducing the risk of damage from misalignment / incorrect installation)
Extracting Bearings (RED adaptors) - SOLD SEPARATELY
Place the RED adaptors from your RRP BEARING KIT as shown below, take time to ensure that all the parts fit flush and are aligned to prevent any damage to parts or frame. In particular check that the female adaptor cup is flush on the frame to prevent frame damage.
Wind on the main handle until the parts all come together, make a final check that everything is aligned properly. Continue to wind on the main handle which will allow the male adaptor to pull on the inner race of the bearing and extract it into the female adaptor cup (NB: The male adaptor passes through the female adaptor to ensure a uniform and true extraction*), it will become harder to turn once the bearing starts to extract. After a couple of turns stop and check that the bearing is extracting properly before continuing
Inserting Bearings (BLUE adaptors) - SOLD SEPARATELY
Place the BLUE adaptors from your RRP BEARING KIT as shown below, take time to ensure that all the parts fit flush and are aligned to prevent any damage to parts or frame.
Wind on the main handle until all the parts come together, the male adaptor should be pressing on the outer race of the bearing you are inserting. Make a final check that everything is all aligned. Continue to wind on the main handle, the male adaptor will press onto the outer race of the bearing and insert it (NB: The male adaptor passes through the female adaptor to ensure a uniform and true insertion*), it will become harder to turn once the bearing starts to insert. After a couple of turns stop and check that the bearing is inserting properly before continuing
