Default Only 5k miles on new t/o bearing, replace it?

Well i replaced the t/o bearing when i did my spec 3i and only have about 5k miles on it (maybe not even that many).

Should i still replace it when i do my rps clutch or would i be okay? Because i remember what a pita it was to get that ****** out last time.

I'd just leave it in there. It's only got 5K miles on it, so I'm sure it has plenty of life left. One question though, why do some people seem to have trouble taking off the throw out bearing? Mine came out pretty easily, just turned it counter clockwise and it popped right off.
