Bottom Bracket Bearing Stuck on Crank Spindle

I installed a Token Tiramic BB to use with an FSA Energy Megaexo crankset. When I pulled the crank to adjust the number of spacers, the drive side bearing came out with the crank (stuck on the spindle). I re-tightened the crank, and everything is installed and spinning smoothly, but I'm wondering how to remove the bearing when I need to replace it. Any suggestions??

TL;DR: I turned my FSA Energy Megaexo into a Campy Ultra-Torque, how do I get the bearing off the crank spindle?

A gear puller should work. An automotive or general machine shop would probably do it for you at nominal cost.
