I wouldn't think the side load would be any more than a chain imposes. Maybe less.
Too many chainsaws, not enough wood.

The chain on a husky is behind the clutch close to the bearing. It may not make any difference, but just seems like it would be better as close to the bearing as design allows.
Old LT40HD, old log truck, old MM forklift, and several huskies.

And those outboard clutches are a pain in the butt to get the chain on/off, especially on a long bar. I don't think I have any outboard clutch saws at the present.
Huskies go both ways, some inboard and some outboard. I've never had bearing issues with any saw but I know that some do.
