    UMI steering system Froze!!! HELP

    I have a UMI steering system for my STX-R that needs new bearings which I have purchased. The main shaft is frozen in the old bearings and I can't seperate the system to install new bearings. I tried putting the nut on the bottom threads and tapping it out but ended up bending the threads a bit and had to re-tap it. Any tips or tricks on how to separate this system without destroying it will be greatly appreciated.
