2013 road glide steering bearings

Is the lower steering stem bearings pressed on? Getting ready to pull it apart and the service manual does not call out for a puller to remove the bearing. Simply says remove the bearing. Thanks

I do many. Almost (99.999999%) have the inside race rusted/corroded onto the steering stem. You can get them off sometimes using a sort of pry that is clamped than tightened onto the underneath of the bearing to wedge the bearing off on its ramp system. Do not rely on the thought that your bearing will come off of the steering shaft unless you are very lucky and your bike or bearing assembly is somewhat new. Good luck.
