Grind off wp gear on camshaft drive gear?

I'd like to grind off the heavy waterpump gear on the camshaft drive gear. I have an electric water pump and don't need. It has some weight to it and I don't like rotational mass. Has anyone tried deleting it?

Buy a Cloyes double roller replacement timing set. Won't have a gear for the water pump.

At least it is probably a balanced rotational mass. Non-precision grinding it may make it less so.
