Bearings on swingarm where dogbones go 2010 r6

I was taking out my lowering link dogbones on my R6 and in the holes where the bolts slide thru I noticed small pins falling out which are part of the bearings. The bearings that fell apart are on the bolt hole further toward the rear on the swingarm. How hard is it to fix this, I was having a hard time removing the old bearings. It looks like they are just in there. 2010 R6

Thanks for any help

They're needle bearings. If the cage isn't damaged and you have all of the needles lightly grease them and lay them back inside of the cage. Make sure there are no gaps between the needles.
If the cage is damaged or you've lost any of the needles you'll need to replace the bearings. The old ones need to be pressed out and the new ones pressed in.
