How do you remove crush washers from the head?

I an a xr650l that I am changing the header out. I see that the old crush washers are surounded by metal on both sides. Does anyone know an easy and safe way to get them out without wrecking the head?

Dental pick.

Pry them out with whatever you have on hand.. Like Bob L suggested, I used a curved pick to get mine out.

Wait until you try to install the new ones... :thumbsup:

The trick to installing the new ones is to bend them just slight enough to be egg shaped,,that will hold them in place and not loose the seal.
