I clean out the socket first and then weld a bead around the inside of the race itself. This will make the bearing race shrink and easier to get out. most times it will spin freely.

on my 400at rancher i drilled a 5/16" hole in the swing arm to let a me get a punch in from the back side of the bearing, then brazied it up with brass and spray paint.

Well, after about 2 hours of trial and error I finally got the bearing races out. Thanks Vettepin and Dirty4man for the recommendations. I started using a dremel tool to cut the race apart, but it was hard not to cut the swingarm, so I stopped. In the end I wound up using a seal puller with a thin piece of aluminum at the puller's leverage point to prevent damage to the swingarm. With the seal puller it took less than 5 minutes!!!
