Where to source washers for 2003 SV650 countershaft

I've got an '03 that I recently swapped a ZX-6R swingarm and rear wheel onto. Of course, the rear sprocket is now farther out from the centerline of the bike and I don't want to put undue strain on the chain so I am looking for input on where I might be able to find some spacers/washers to place behind the engine sprocket to restore planarity.

Of course, I suppose I could go to a local machinist, but I figured I'd ask here just in case someone knew of an alternative.

Just use 2-3 more stock washers?

Keep in mind that the further out the C/S sprocket is, the more stress you're putting on the outer C/S bearing.

Flip front sprocket, that will give you couple mm. You can't go any more safely, you will not be able to use lock washer and locking device built in to nut. And you don't want that nut to come off.
Move rear sprocket in.

I'm interested to see more info on the swap you did. What year ZX6? Have any pics?

I may be mistaken, but there aren't any washers except for the one that's splined and goes on the outside of the sprocket. I suppose I could snag a couple of those and put them on the inside. Let me know if that's what you're referring to.

I wasn't aware that the teeth weren't centered on the sprocket. Will check that out. I'm not following on your claim of not being able to use the lock washer and nut though. There's about a quarter inch of excess shaft available and the nut is simply torqued down, then an end of the washer is bent over against one face of the nut to hold it in place. This is stock configuration. Are you thinking of another setup, perhaps?

It's a 2006 ZX-6R swingarm with matching rear wheel and brake setup. The pivot shaft bracket (on the swingarm, maybe it's got a different name, I dunno) is only about a mm or two narrower than the SV one, and the pivot shaft is the same diameter, so I used the SV pivot shaft with one or two washers to keep the swinger centered.

Two problems I had to tackle:

The cush bracket from the ZX-6R was too wide at the frame-mounting-end, so I had to use the SV one. But the SV one dogbone mounting point was narrower than the mount points on the swingarm. SO I used the longer bolt from the ZX-6R cush bracket (same diameter as SV again), along with some custom made aluminum spacers to set the dogbones out at the correct width to match the mounting points on the swinger.

Routing the exhaust was a nightmare. I ended up temporarily doing a combination of flex pipe and chopped up bits of the stock exhaust. Just a stopgap until I get someone local to fab something up.

They're not the best, but here's what I've got right now:

Getting images onto these damn forums is absolute rubbish. if you right click and open the second image in a new window you can actually see the bike

They are not on stock sprocket. 520 has shoulder on outside and you can flip it.
Lock washer sits on splined part, not thread. You will push it off the spline with washers. Nut is also lock nut.
I do have washers if you want but like I said moving rear sprocket is better option
