stuck circlip and wristpin

Im working on a 03 xr 650 L I need to relace the piston and rings but one of the circlips is stuck up against the wristpin and seized in place does anyone have any ideas how to get this out.

You only need to get one out, makes it easy to decide which way to push the pin out

Lol

The wrist pin is siezed to the piston I made a home made puller with a grade 8 bolt and nut with a couple of sockets right now I've got it soaking in some penatrating oil so we'll see how this works out.

Have you checked the piston/conn rod end float ?
Make sure you have some, thus ensuring the pin is not seized in the rod small end.
Then move to heating piston to allow pin/piston movement.
Doing a cold press is not a good plan.

I went to ace hardware and got a 1/2" x 8 grade 8 bolt, nut & washer and used a 32 mm socket on one sied and the nut against the wrist pin and went after it with a ratchet and got her to come free now time too install a new piston ring set and wrist pin.
