i had considered this myself a while back,removed sprocket and started pondering my conundrum.
i have a large assortment of shims/washers and even a lathe to make
circular objects.
between the keyway and the oil seal and the remaining threads on the shaft
i didnt think the work involved gained much clearance (i dont think i could have got 1/8") clearance after mucking about.

only solution would be an offset sprocket.

on another note,
i dragged my bike out of storage and added fresh gas.hopped on and went for a ride.runs as good as the day i put it away.
it was a long cold winter that lasted almost seven months.
i really missed my bike,putting on the hybriped sprocket this weekend.
