Just thinking about welding on the output shaft, do you think there is a chance you will damage the heat treatment of the shaft and lead to it breaking off? Don't think I would risk it. Is the sprocket too thin causing the nut to thread on past most of the threads on the shaft? If so, can you add shims behind the sprocket without it getting too much out of line with the rear?
heat transfer could be a problem, but it would only need a couple of small spots (or so i'm told) so should be ok.
the sprocket is supposedly the same dimensions as standard, but i've gone back to using yammie front sprocket
you could probably pad it out, but i dont see how that would help, better off having a 2nd washer on the outside
there isnt enough room for a 2nd nut tho
