I have not personally tried this but I have put a non-dampened exc sprocket on my 690 using a small spacer behind it, so it would make sense that it could be done the other way by removing material from the inside of the sprocket.
I searched and couldn't find a picture of anything but standard. Do you have one.

Dave Hopkins claims to be doing one output shaft a week due to ruined slines from DS bikes.
