Its like a pipe in between the bearings. Cant get in and hit the bearing from behind
And both bearings are totally stuck. Is this normal? Bought the wheels used.
Sprayed with wd40 and it got colored brown from what I guess is rust. The rear wheel seems to be fine

Wheel bearing puller.

Various types available, should find one on ebay or Amazon.

What kind of puller? The ones that expand in the bearing and uses a slide hammer?
Where can i buy a good bearing kit? Triumph wants about 70 for bearings, seals and circlip, a bit pricey? SKF would be nice

Do you know anyone with a welder. Drop a long bolt through the bearings. Weld the head to one bearing and tap it from the other side
when you sit on a sports bike you feel special...when you sit on an adventure bike you feel something special is going to happen!!

I had my front wheel bearings renewed a few weeks ago, mechanic said some previous idiot owner/dealer must have used a pressure washer around the wheel, bearing on one side rusty and stuck fast. He struggled to get them out and eventually had to weld a bolt across the bearing case and managed to knock them out. I sourced the bearings (SKF) and seals myself from my local bearing factor...14 for the set. No need to pay Triumph's outrageous prices.

I heated hub and used a slide hammer with a puller, very easy to get them out that way (5min job).
Here is one bearing, cant be moved at all

I can not find the sealing 35 47 6/65
Only 35 47 6. What is the last numbers for? 6 , 6/65

35 is the ID, 47 is the OD and 6 would be the width.  Not seen a 6/65, before, give it a measure, maybe it's supposed to fill either a 6 or 6.5 mm width.  In any case, you should get one easily enough.  I see Simply Bearings have them at 6mm from 2.12 upwards.
