Sorry to say your not the 1st. There was quite the flurry of activity some time back when lots of guy's were checking out that weld area, Weld it up and roost! BTW. It appears the chain wears through to the weld and then grinds it off, resulting in cracks. Is this what happened to you?

Now, I have the swingarm protector glued the onto the swingarm with stuff called "Automotive Goop". It's kind of like heavy-duty contact cement. The stuff is very durable and I'm seeing less wear on the protector than I have in the past. I also noticed that there's less wear now that I've went back up to a 50T rear sprocket from a 49T.

I plan on just getting it welded up for sure. My chain hasn't touched the swing arm and I havn't grinded the weld. I put on one of the TMD chain Sliders a long time ago to keep that from happening. Guess it just failed. Whatever, no big deal gives me an excuse to tear it down and go through the bearings at the same time.
