KTM 525 shift shaft needle bearing

I had an oil leak at my gear shifter. Should of been no problem, pulled the seal, and I found the real problem. The first needle bearing you can see after pulling the seal has a piece of the sidewall missing, exposing the needles and the inner race.

Has anyone ever changed one of these before? I don't know if I can pull it from the inside-out with a blind bearing puller, or does the case need to be split? My local KTM dealer is even stumped.

Thanks in advance for the help. I'm new to the site, as the bike is new to me, but it looks like there's a lot of knowledge on the boards here!

Pull it out with a small awl or hook.
