Part: Rear Wheel Bearing Retainer Tool for Honda CB350 / CB360 / CB450 / CB500 / CB550 / CB750

Why You Need This: When your Honda CB350, CB360, CB450, CB550, or CB750 rear wheel has a shimmy vibration, lateral play, or a wobble from side to side, you are in need of a rear bearing change. These bearings are held in place by a bearing retainer - a part that is often destroyed when attempting to remove with the improper tools. Lucky for you, Common Motor has made our very own rear bearing retainer tool to allow for easy removal, cutting down your frustration and maintenance time. The #9065 tool is made to attach to a 3/8 ratchet while the #9062 tool fits a 1/2" ratchet and both fit in the specific bearing retainer holes or grooves perfectly. Use this custom CMC tool to remove and install your rear wheel bearing retainer. If someone has attempted to remove your retainer with improper tools, pick up a new rear-wheel retainer to go with the new rear wheel bearings.

Note: Check which tool fits the model motorcycle you are working on.

*CB750K0-K5 / CB750F / CB750A has two wheel bearing retainers.

Installation Tip: These rear wheel bearing retainers have been peened into the hub to prevent movement. In order to remove the retainer properly (even with the tool) you will need to carefully drill out the peen marks. Make sure to use a new or sharp 1/8" drill bit and just ever so slightly drill past the peen mark. To make the removal easier, soak the retailer with penetrating oil and heat it thoroughly before attempting removal. Once you have replaced the bearings, use the bearing retainer tool to tighten the retainer back in place and peen back in place.

The below video was made before Common Motor made our own bearing retainer tools, so have a chuckle while you use the proper tools and follow the step-by-step instructions as needed.

This tool really made a difference when removing and re-installing the rear bearing retainer on my 72 CB500. I did have to tweak the nubs a bit to get them to fit my retainer better. The spacing was a bit off - I just filed down the edges where needed and then it fit and worked great. But I attribute the fit issue to the 50 year old retainer rather than the tool. The CMC web page kind of warns that the CB500/550 is a bit of an oddball, so I wasn't surprised at the fit issue. But the tool is high quality and hefty - way better than trying to turn that retainer with a punch and hammer! And again, Brenden's video has great tips for removal - like drilling out the peens - that made a huge difference.

Popped it on a breaker bar and my CB350's rear wheel bearing retainer came out in nothing flat. Took 8 seconds flat. High quality fit and finish, definitely not a throw away tool by any means. If you have to get into the rear wheel bearings and value your time, then you should just spend the money on this tool.
