Because of the relitively low cost, if it were me i'd just replace the whole front bearing.... Otherwise, if you have a replacement seal just pick the old one out with a razor blade and push the new one in...

ditto what those guys up there said...replace the bearing all together...

and use a washer behind the collet that is not any larger in diameter than the metal race of the bearing next time...basically the washer is the same diameter as the collet

I only use a collet washer if the flywheel gets too close to the front of the motor

Well actually it is sometimes better to shim your clutch bell using collet shims. Specially when using a shallow CB with curtain clutches such as the Werks Racing clutch...

Just food for thought
