Last one I did (not an Ape sorry) I used a length of threaded bar, some washers, and 1/2in sockets.
Basically, just wound them out. Pretty easy to be honest.
Good luck.

On another note, I have a full set of swingarm bearings including the sleeve for sale. 
All genuine Aprilia parts. Wink

You can't do that with this swingarm can't really explain there's a ledge behind it so can't get anything behind it

What brand are the bearings? There's 2 caged bearings and 1 big needle roller (the one I'm trying to remove) on the other side

Sorry, don't know the specific manufacturer.
They are all genuine Aprilia parts (unopened)
There's also the bearing sleeve required for the big needle bearing?
Complete set.
£25 delivered.

Tifa if he doesn't want them I'll take them please done the swingarm over the winter but would be handy to do the dogbone this winter. 

I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

I gave up in the end and took the swingarm off and gave it to a mate who used a press at work. Worth a four pack the threaded bar method wouldn't work for me but thatwould make sense now if there's a ridge stopping it.

Split collet bearing pullers on a slide hammer are the best way, did a set on a zx9r last week and they took about 20 min to get them all out.

Will ping you a PM as soon as I get back.

If you need them sooner clarkie, and have to buy from elsewhere, I quite understand.
No problem.
