Default Front wheel bearings

Anyone know how to remove the front wheel bearings on a 2002 750 ace without destroying them? I want to save them to try to repack. I read a post on how to do it. Took the front wheel off and it just looks pretty dry in there. The spacer in the center of the hub moves easily like there is no grease at all around it. Not making any noise yet though. Got the thin seal out and the keeper but now I'm stuck. Can you drive the both of them out one side or do they come out the side that they are on?

Uhhh, I believe they are sealed units. How do you plan on repacking them?

Using a dental tool to gently pop off the dust seal then repack. It can be done if only I can get the d@man things out.

They have to be either knocked out, or use a bearing puller. Either way there is risk of damage. If there is no issue, I would leave them alone. They are sealed for a reason. Supposed to be non serviceable. You may find you can't pop those covers back on after removing them.

You may be able to pop the one dust cover leaving the bearing in the wheel. Smear the grease around, since the balls rotate, grease will reach all places it needs to. Just a suggestion.

OK. Can they both be driven out the same side? Driven from one side out the other? If I mess em up I'll just get new ones. Mite do that anyways.
