Front sprocket lock washer (aka locking plate) pretty rusty looking. Should I replace?

Hi all,

So I was cleaning out the gunk out of the front sprocket and I noticed that the somewhat diamond shape lock washer on the front sprocket is looking rather brown. I'm not noticing anything mechanically wrong with the bike, but out of an abundance of caution this has me a little concerned.

Should I replace this?

And a secondary question for those who have messed with this part of the bike, is it just a simple replace with 2 screws or are there any gotchas?

Thanks y'all.

Are you talking about the circular part with the number '41' on it?
he means the round thing in the chains, ones that touch the sprockets in the center. The entire chain as a whole looks very rusty and not maintained well. Lube your chain asap.
