Last year while trying to get my state inspection, I ended up taking my X to a few places looking at getting front bearings redone. One of these yahoos messed up the grease seal and I get grease oozing out onto my wheel. I looked at the problem and there is a small part of the metal seal that is distorted from pliers thus letting grease out. I did my best to seal the small void with some silicone I think but looks like I will need new seals (I thought they were called hub caps).

So here's my question; the grease I've lost, do I have to worry about being low on the wheel bearings or not? I'm thinking that of course you're going to overpack bearings and some grease is expected to fling off. Would it simply had stayed attached to the seal or would it work its way back into the bearings. I hope this makes sense, thanks in advance!
