Hey guys,
I know that to check if the left side bearing is bad, you have to remove the magneto cover and shake the rotor to see if there is any movement. But, to check if the right side bearing is bad , how do I do this? Do I take off the clutch cover....

Any explanation will be appreciated!! :)

... and wiggle the primary drive gear. That's the one on the other end of the crank. A fairly large bolt (or nut on some models) holds the gear on there. This is the small gear that turns the clutch basket.
