does anyone have any experience with replacing the bushings in the rear hub? there's 4 of them and i took them out to get the hub powder coated. i've got 4 new ones on order and i'm just wondering if there's going to be any tricks or tools involved. i don't actually remember how they got out, i think my painter must have taken them out for me. so  i don't have any notions on how they go back in. i imagine it will be a press fit, but if anyone has done this before i'd appreciate your insight.

Hi there,

I took out the bushings on my XL125 rear hub and they were a bear to remove. I had to get brake cleaner to partially dissolve the rubber to remove. Removing is the HARD part, installing is easy, like you surmised, it is just a press fit.
