You can get this done by pretty well any jobbing engineering/machine shop. You may find a local motorcycle dealer can do it too.

The diesel fuel flush is done from the bottom through the drain plug hole and its not like you want to shoot a gallon of fuel up there, just little squirts at a time to flush the particles out.
Once its all back together put cheap oil in it, run it for a few minutes and then drain it, and replace it with your good oil of choice.
Diesel is like super light oil and contains NO friction modifiers that could possibly harm your clutch, it is totaly safe to use in THIS fashion.

The longer I have my bike (and the more work I do on it), the less I worry about those little things. I figure the oil filter will catch most of them and if I think I have some big pieces, I'd change the oil prematurely just in case. Oil changes have gotten pretty quick and easy over time.
Good luck with your repair.

If you did not use any sealer when you put the thing in your kinda screwed,,, (pun, get it?)
you wont be able to seal it after the fact,,, the oil will just seep through,,, at least I have never been able to seal someting that has already leaked,,,
