changing front sprocket question

...in the manual it sas to apply some kind of moly blah blah grease behind the countershaft sprocket. How important is this..what happens if I dont?? (other than the moly blah blah grease police show up and pay me a visit..) Never did it to any other of my bikes and had zero problems.

Molybdenum Disulfide - it's easy to come by, so why not put it on?

Its just so the metal to metal contact of sprocket to shaft doesn't become fused over time. There is enough grease left from factory and the grease slinging off chain to not worry about.
