very true. I did a similar mod on my rc51. but since I always rode in full leathers, I wasn't concerned with loose clothing getting into wrong places.

If its a track bike just take it off. The amount of oil slinging depends on what you use to clean and lube the chain. The sprocket is pretty far in there and a pretty freak accident to get a body part mangled.
