rear bearings

Can anyone give me a way to remove the rear wheel bearings without purchasing a special tool. It would seem that you would scar everything internally if you tried to punch them out with something. So far I haven't been able to find any info on the process.

I found a process on this site for removing rear bearings on an 1100. Seems simple and effective.

Honda makes a tool for the retaining nut on the rear wheel. I've been thinking of making one for myself. I've seen the pictures where the person used a pair of needle nose pliers with the tips inserted in two of the spanner holes in the retainer and then used a bar in between the plier tips to loosen the retainer.
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

If you have a look at How to replace your rear wheel bearings, you'll see me demonstrate the use of a simple homemade tool that works well to extract the bearing. I've used the same technique on both wheels of my 1100, 1500 and PC800.
