Removing 91 FLT frame neck bearing races

I am rebuilding front end on my late model 91 Harley FLT. Need to remove neck bearing races. factory manual says to drive out from back of race with a drift. The bearing races set down in a recess and there is no area on back of bearing race for drift to catch. How do you get these things out. Any help appreciated. Thanks, Buster

If you can't drive em out, weld a bead around in them, this will shrink 'em..

Thanks Sleeper, I was hoping that would not be the answer. I don't have a welder and have the bike torn down to frame, motor, and trans (difficult to transport). I believe I will try grinding some grooves on interior of races with dremel and see if a drift will catch in the grooves. It is going to be difficult.

Buster-

If you have a small wizz wheel, cut a groove in each & try again to beat em out..
