Having done this particular job more than once, a liberal coating of plus gas or any graphited easing oil and application of heat from a heat gun will help. You can grind it out with a dremel type tool but you only have to release the part in the lefthand eye viewed from rear of bike. Be very careful not to go outside the diameter of the bush into the alloy as you can't put metal back.
Take it out every year after replace it. Rawl bolt and a tube and washer often works.
Annoyingly, the bush is case hardened in the hole as well or the normal method would be to tap a thread in it to draw on. Why it's not just a longer bush through two holes the same size is beyond me.
