Howdy,

How do the swingarm bearings come out? The inner race/sleve seems captured somehow??

I believe that the swingarm bearings are press fit.

simply put it in a vise together with a piece of round peace of metal a bit smaller and you can turn it out

Actually, the problem I'm having is getting the inner sleve (inner race) out. It is not rusted, and the parts book shows no retainer???

there is no inner race . there is a bearing a sleeve and a seal.
14 or 15 mm deep socket and an extention and a hammer will get the bearings out.
put in vice to press bearings in .make shur to press on the flat side of the bearing not the rounded side with the socket in the vice.
