The wheel bearing is lubed with the same oil. If you drain it then the bearing must be packed with grease and sealed somehow. I haven't done that, but the chain boots are not terribly hard to get to seal up. It's the wheel seal that is hard. The trick to the boots is to not tighten the bolts until the rubber spooges out.

I took one off of a 83 FXRT and a 83 FLT no problems with the wheel bearings as they had seals on them already.

I took mine off when it leaked, it was torn so I just ditched it.
Ran it as a open chain drive
that was around 90
If I remember the rear wheel had packed bearings anyway,
If you are just wondering if you can run it open, glad to help
If not, sorry, no help here
