Sounds like a pretty low stress lifestyle! I wont be waiting until 67. Our plan is to go part time before 55...whether thats work 6-8 months or work 2-3 days a week i'm not sure yet. But am working on my chill now!

Comes stock with 17/38. 4000rpm at 100kmh there are no cushioned 18t for this bike. The 18t is deluxe, knocks 550rpm off. There are no off the shelf 36t

If i practise smooth riding can i get away with the all steel front, or is there some risk of damaging the drive shaft or worse?

Fuel tank prop is my guess.

I wouldn't, I've seen plenty of stripped splines over the years where folks have removed the comp sprocket. (and on tar-ridden dirt bikes) Primary-belt conversions on big twins are a culprit.
Factory engineers aren't fools, stuff is there for a reason.

I've really no idea... Yet, figure out why those butterfly pinches are there:
Figure that out & you'll likely figure out the rest of it too imo; best of luck.

Edit: That's likely so you don't insert it too far:-
So look for an orifice/hole/channel 40mm depth.

Thanks. I've found a triumph with the same spline, but the sprocket is 9mm instead of 10.8mm so i will shim it. Triumph is the 1050 so same or more power as mine, should be fine with a shim?

Yeah. If its a crush fit just shim it up to spec, if it's a loose fit I'd glue the shim to the sprocket (Lords brand 'Maxlok MX/T6)
