Removing adapter sleeve in talon hub for YZ450f


I'm currently building a SUMO out of a 2006 yz450f, can't wait! I bought some used rims with Talon hubs. I'm putting new bearings in the hubs before installing. Anyway, from what I understand, there is an adapter sleeve that runs through the center of the hub (inside the bearing ID) to adapt the axle from 22mm to 25mm (or something like that).

So how the heck do I get the sleeve out? I've watched videos on youtube about changing bearings, that looks straightforward, but nobody mentions the adapter sleeve. I gave it a few light whacks with a hammer but didn't look like it was wanting to budge.
