R6 Wheel Bearing Help Needed

Hey all,

As some of you know, I run a club at the school I teach at where we work on bikes. We've been building up an R6 into a track bike for a while now and are just about finished with it. We just pulled the wheels back off and stripped the paint and whatnot so that it can be powder coated, but as we were removing the bearings, came across this:



I'm assuming that needs to come out too, but I can't seem to figure out how to get it out. Any advice?

PS I apologize for this being about an R6 rather than my ZX6R, but at least it's not a GSXR, right?

Never mind! I got it! Heated it up and slipped a 28mm socket down there which fit tight enough to grab the edge all the way around and allowed me to pound it out after hearing a bit

Heat was my first thought.. Is there a shoulder for the bearing to rest against.
It's hard to see.

Of course going back in, heat it up. Find some Dry ice for the bearing.
Between the hub being hot, the bearing cold it should slip in. Would have a persuader that fit's the outer side of the bearing to ensure it's home. Assuming there is a shoulder to stop it.
