for those that do not know what this is...



"It is a heavy T6061 piece shaped like a "dog bone" that replaces your handlebar upper clamps. It adds substantial rigidity when using handlebar riser extensions. "

Swedie,

The "dog bones" are not anywhere near the top triple clamp and have nothing to do with the handlebars or handlebar risers...

anyone??? anyone???
Shrake,

The bearings are pressed in and need to be pressed out or banged out with a hammer and an appropriate sized "driver". I doubt you have a hydraulic press in your garage so you will have to drive them out with a something....

oh.. sorry about that.. I screwed up.

like winders said. use force to take off the bearing. You can also use a long screwdriver that you insert from the top (inside the hole) and gently hit the bearing on different locations on and it will eventually come off.
It's sitting there.. HARD.
