After seeing wear, and hearing the slaps on the sub and main frame, :) I adjusted the chain to the min slack. It took care of it, exept under low rpm excel. Anyone have a cure for this?

As previous post shows, there is a link to Motoman393's forum for a quick, cheap fix. You can also replace the stock swingarm buffer with one from TMDesignworks. Twice as thick and doesn't shuffle back and forth like the stocker does.

Ditto Dave. I have had my TM design slider on for almost a year. It does not slide and does very well at protecting the swingarm. It is very thick compared to the stock unit. :)

Hey Indy most of the wear is on the alum sub-fram suport,left of the swing arm. Is this the wear everyone else is talking about? On mine the chain slaps to the side. :)

No they are talking about the actual swingarm wearing under the stock slider due to chain slap and the fact that the stock unit slides around a lot. Your issue is something different. :)
