The front end can come off as one unit to get at the bearings. Preferably the front wheel/fender is off. Then the bars followed by the neck nuts (
). You don't have to pull the fork tubes at all. You're only dropping it far enough to get the steering stem clear of the neck. The lower bearing is press fit and interesting to get off (heat?). There's a race in the upper and lower neck. The top pops out with a long screwdriver in from the bottom. The bottom is a little harder. They'll get replaced but try and not scratch the race area. To get the new bottom one on use a pipe the same diameter as the inner bearing cone with an identical diameter small piece of PCV
pipe for cushion. The race/bearing on top is easy to get in. The lower should be put in the freezer overnight to shrink a bit. Use a hard plastic hammer head and a piece of wood for the job. 3# mall is overkill.
Study the front end and it's operation. Picture what does what and it'll become clear (grasshopper).
