Default How to remove the sleeve from a Nova Rossi Beat 5.

I got new bearings and a new bearing tool because my beat 5 needs new bearings.

But I can't get the sleeve out. It won't budge at all. I can't even get any tool in there to help push it out.

I tried a heat gun but that didn't help.

Is there something I'm missing here?

Has anyone done this before and how does it come out?

Most use a zip tie in the exhaust port while turning the crank and the piston lifts it out. Sometimes they can be stubborn and that doesn't work, I use a tool that is plastic and wider. Fioroni I believe makes a tool.

Yes, thank you.

I actually did a thorough search and found that same idea from one guy on here (I forget his name but he's on here a lot) and it worked. I used 2 zip ties in an "L" sort of way so I could pull it through the back with more force to keep it from popping out. It took a few different spacers (Open end wrenches) to continue prying up on that rib/lip around the top outside but it came out nicely.

But now I can see the few scratches left from the pieces of the bearing I'm assuming. They run down the sides in 4 different spots but this still has good compression, awesome tight pinch even when hot.

I can usually found a tooth brush that will fit through the exhaust port that will pop it out.
