Better remove the brake calipers like guys that run dirt circle track. Brakes make your bike slower and you don't want that.

you can also crank the axle nuts as tight as you want, the spacers contact the outside of the bearing race not the inside and put zero preload on the sealed roller bearings. The bearings are not tapered like in older cars or large heavy trucks to where too much preload or tightness on the nut would increase drag. But iI'm not a Honda engineer what would i know

always torque to spec, apply loctite where required, etc. following the manual is a good idea
