From what you've said, things should be just fine. Be sure to keep an eye on that seal area for the next few rides. Also, make sure you always have a good counter sproket seal in place. That will hold the dust and dirt out. :thumbsup:

However,If you notice an excess amount of oil coming form the case.... you'll have to change the bearing. :devil:
