KTM Supermoto question - Counter shaft sprocket

2 questions:

1. So I was doing some spring cleaning and decided to take a look at my counter shaft sprocket. While removing the cover this rubber spacer (see pic) fell out. It appears to simply sit on the sprocket with no way to attach it. It has some worn holes that match up with the sprocket empty holes.

What is it? Should I toss it / replace it? It doesn't seem to serve any purpose.

2. The sprocket is damn close (pretty much touching) the rubber that covers the swingarm (see pic). This is one solid piece that the chain also rides on, so I'm guessing its' fine. There doesn't seem to be any adjustment or way to move it.

Worry or Don't worry about it?

I just realized looking at the pictures that the sprocket looks like it has the rest of the nubs from the spacer. What's the point of it. Some aftermarket sprockets don't even have those holes.

Here's a pic from the service manual, spacing looks the same on the sprocket to swingarm rubber as mine, close!

my guess would be its a vibration/noise damper that would pad the chain links as they came onto the sprocket judging by the service manual pic it looks like it extends up onto the teeth, this one has worn down and broken off, i dount its anything mechanical though

^^ This is likely correct.... Noise control.

I am retracting my offer since you keep taking parts off the bike.

Multiply your offer times 3 and still no!

Plus I heard you don't even ride bikes, only collect them.

A green DRZ is a rare item. Riding it would decrease the value.
