Step 1:
gather your materials
Wait a minute….
Step 1:
gather your materials
There we go. This is going to getmessy….For a work surface, you want a wide,open space covered with material thatwill keep the bearings from rolling off in every direction should they fall on it.It should be free of clutter, and far away from drainage holes, sewer gratings, subway gratings, rabbit,mole, or groundhog burrows, faultlines, wells, and any other kind of opening that errant ball and needlebearings might seek out as they fleeyour fumbling fingers.Although the ball and needle bearingsin Dura-Ace Octalinkbottom bracketsare “standard” and “readily available,”Murphy’s Law suggests that when youactually lose one, no bike shop withina 100-mile radius will have them instock, and that they’ll take three weeksto arrive because QBP has them onbackorder from Shimano.
Step 2:
disassembleyour bottom bracket 
That looks about as ugly as it feels....Like I said earlier, my intention is tooffer tips on how to clean, lube, andmaintain a Dura-Ace Octalinkbottombracket, nothing more. So I’m going touse a bottom bracket that’s alreadybeen disassembled as my startingpoint, and I’m not going to try toprovide instructions on how to removeit, disassemble it, reassemble it, or install it. For that, I’ll refer you toShimano’s service instructions, which,kind chap that I am, I’ve included inthe blog, along with an exploded view.“Exploded” indeed….One word of caution:
don’t be tempted to use a magnet to remove thebearings,
at least not if you plan onever using them again. It seems like acool, bike-shop thing to do, but you’llend up magnetizing the bearings, andruining them in the process.
