Update: In case anyone else has this issue the only way i found to replace the seal is pulling the plate off and using a socket to pound on the back of the bearing which pushes the seal out of the front of the plate. Waiting on my new seal to get here so i can throw it back in and hopefully be ride ready this weekend.

Rent a press, use a brass hammer or brass drift at the least.

Press the new bearing you now need back in. Hope I am wrong...but just sayin'

This reminds me. When looking for hard to find driveline noises over the years I used a mechanic's stethoscope, extended the hose and duct taped the tip on suspect components & test drove them.

Edit: leave one ear out of the scope to compare the sounds while testing

First ride:My brother's old Baja 500 entry sponsored by Bushmaster body corp. *not 1000 miles years ago....
Tubular frame buggy, Porsche jugs machined to VW block, " Pat Rutledge machinist" a VW bus close ratio transaxle & turning brakes.
My dad bought it for me to learn how to drive @ 10 & I been hooked ever since passing along the adrenaline to offspring for decades.LOL
Current rides:2015 570-a keeper 2016 570 X2-a keeper 2012 550 X2-selling
Past rides:2008 800HO red Sportsman, sold. 2008 800 HO Sportsman X2 stolen. & pizzed 2009 RZRs, sold.
Too many scooters to mention so lets go with the rare ones I need to kick myself for parting with.
1979 Honda CBX filled with Ontario Motor Speedway parts, Yoshi 6 into one & gummy bear PZ2s on the street.
1979 Kawasaki Z1R-TC only 500 made 10.32 quarter mile stock. $4400. when new in 79.
Used one just sold for way over 100k... hindsight is 20/20
