    No offense intended but if you can't take the wheel off yourself, what does it matter if it's the bearings or something else?

    You'll have to take it to a shop anyway, so... take it to a shop.

    Working on a street bike doesn't get much easier than something air cooled, especially a V twin. You can darn near get by with pliers, a screwdriver and a hammer with a claw.
