    Just double check everything to be sure it's all loose. Couldn't hurt to put some penetrant on there for good measure...the best is a 50-50 mix of acetone and ATF. It can sit and soak while you ponder some more!

    My big worry would be the condition of the fit of the outer race to the wheel hub.

    If any good is coming out of this is that I was going to ride it on a 1500 mile tour around Utah last week.
    My Brothers were going to ride other bikes of mine.
    They backed out at the last minute.
    That R-80 could easily be sitting in Hanksville Ut, instead of my garage.
