Removed centre bolt down middle

Should the fork just come out now??

There looks to be a type of circlip but no holes to use circlip pliers, do i pop it out or is that holding bearings together.

Its on a carrera virago so not a threaded unit, do i just need to give a tap to pop out??

Any info would be great
