My '98 400 has alot of chain slap! Brand new sprocket (f/r) and a new Chain. Adjusted to 2 inches of slack measured above the last bolt on the swingarm chain guide. If I'm a gear low and cruising it slaps pretty bad. After about a month I've checked the sprockets and they aren't worn down funny (ie, hooked, broken, etc.).
I guess I should stop being paranoid.

silicon under the slider works well to simply reduce the noise from slapping. you can just lever the slider up and put a nice thick bead of silicon under it.
I have simply put a peice of an old thong (flip flop, not g string) under it and glued it in place. works well

Make sure your motor is turning enough rpms at the speed your going to keep your chain tight on the load side.
