I sent a 51mg off to shimano about a year ago for some TLC and when I got it back the main two spool bearings have the shields on and I want to take them off to clean like my other 51mg. I looked for the little ring like the Boca's have but I must be missing it.

Any tips on how to remove it to clean and oil?

Thanks

That's sorta what I thought. So that leads me to question #2, what are the factory bearings like for the Ch51MG? With or without shields?

The Ch50/51Mg's originally came with unshielded ARB's.

A few years later Shimano came out with the Shielded ARB's and I may be mistaken but I don't think they offer the unshielded ones anymore. Bantam would know.

I use a razor blade and my tiny sharpened screw driver to remove the pressed in shields.
