Advice on removing bearing races for triple tree

I am in the process of a complete rebuild of the front end of my 80 xs1100 special.
I have gotten the top race out of the "gooseneck" but can't seem to get a bite on the bottom race. Any thoughts or recommendations on the necessary tool.

120 mph speedo.
1979 carbs jetted 147 mains
47 idle

If not going to save the bearing/race, dremmel with a cut-off wheel splits the race.
81H Venturer1100 "The Bentley" (on steroids) 97 Yamaha YZ250(age reducer) 92 Honda ST1100 "Twisty"(touring rocket) Age is relative to the number of seconds counted 'airing' out an 85ft. table-top.

Put a half-inch long bead on it with a MIG and it'll usually drop out. Only if yer going to replace, though.
