Shift shaft removal 08 YZ

I was wondering if there is a method that might work to remove the shift pedal from the shift shaft on an 08. The teeth on the pedal are messed up and this thing does not seem to want to budge. It looks like the pedal dug into the shaft and created a crevice. I placed a flathead in the gap to try and pry it open some, but that doesn't seem to be working.

My question, does the shaft come out from the "shifter" side of the bike?

I have already ordered gaskets, seals, and other parts to replace the shaft.

Thanks

shaft comes out the clutch side...

Be sure the clamp bolt is removed from the lever, not just loosed. The bolt passes through a waist of the shaft, and will retain the lever even if loose.

If the bolt is out and the lever is still being stubborn, use a screwdriver to wedge the clamp open some.

As Birdy says, the shaft comes out from under the clutch, so remove that side cover and the clutch itself to extract it.

The crevice you mentioned is not the smooth area between the 2 spline sections is it? Because that is supposed to be there. Like already stated make sure the bolt is completely out....been there.

I got the shifter off. Here is a pic of the splines on the shaft. Replace?
