When I need to remove a bearing of a size that I do not have the exact proper removal tool for I use long socket head cap screw, a washer on the head of the screw, the closest fitting 1/4" drive socket and a nut on the other end of the long screw. I hold the nut in my vise, tighten the screw and heat the assembly with a heat gun to expand the aluminum and soften any locking compound while tightening the screw to get the bearing to pop out.

a person would have a hard time making one like that any cheaper.

I know,, I made a similar one.. years ago for brushed mod motors.

I have one similar to those posted - I think it's a Fantom.

In general, the pinion side of the can is easy. The sensor board side of the motor can be a challenge - most manufactures do it differently and there probably won't be an obvious stock solution with any of these tools. The last one I did was a Reedy motor, took me awhile and I had to add washers and spacers, and in the end it was like - Oh well, let's just go for it

I have and use the Motiv motor bearing tool. It has adapters to accommodate different sensor board styles and after testing, it works very well. You may pay a little more for it, and if you are not brand loyal, it will pay for itself in the long run.
