KTM RFS countershaft seal screw up, need help!

I recently replaced the countershaft seal on my 525 and in the process of pulling the seal with a screw, I accidentally pierced some type of plastic retainer on the countershaft roller bearing. It's still in tact but now has two small holes in it. My heart sank as it looks like this bearing is inside the case. I'm wondering how big of a problem did I create and would appreciate any direction from here. I've since run the bike about 20 miles with no obvious problems. Thanks!

Looks like the partial shield on an open bearing. I'd not worry at all. The seal you are replacing holds the oil in. That just keeps a slight barrier there. Watch the seal for weeping but I don't think you'll see any.
