Not useful to me so far since they don't yet have a 14.5mm adapter.

why do u need a 14mm adaptor for? you can buy them seperately?

i need to invest in one so i can start removing my engine bearings and cleaning them!

iv always opened the engine and cleaned it with the bearing still attached.

It seems you don't really understand what the tools is for.

You don't need to remove the bearing to clean the inside of your engine. You leave the bearing in there.

The tool is only used when replacing the bearing with a new one.

Yes you can get the 14 but not a 14.5.

If the 14 will pull the 14.5 bearings then I might have to get one.

i think in order to check the condition of the bearing its better to have it
removed. That means that you dont really need this tool only for changing bearings
but for removing/checking also.

Wouldn't all that insertion and removal potentially damage the bearings or the block? Does the tool only contact the outer race and put no stress on the inner race/balls?

It is unnecessary to remove the bearing from the crankcase to check, you can check the bearing while it is still in the case.

The tool grabs the inner race of the bearing when pulling it out of the case.

Well, i think checking the bearing while inside the crankcase by using the crankshaft cannot tell you 100% of the condition of the bearing.
when i have a doubt about the condition i remove it and check it. However, most times, i replace it.Btw, i do the traditional way of heating
the crankcase, however with these tools you can replace a bearing very fast
at the track.

You don't use the crankshaft to check the bearing, you stick your finger on the inner race of the bearing inside the crankcase then by applying pressure while trying to spin the bearing you will feel if it is smooth or gritty.

Default Does this tool work with 14.5 mm Novarossi bearings?
