Try this... Take out the bolt holding the back part of the slider to the swingarm. Lift it up, and block it up with a wrench or something. Clean under there, and the back of the swingarm with some brake clean or carb cleaner. Then figure out something you have in the garage to put in there to act as a pad. I used some 3M two sided tape stuck directly to the swingarm trimmed to not stick out from under the slider, the thick stuff. This got rid of the noise you are talking about (I only heard it on the pavement by the way?) Others have used a peice of inner tube or other rubber and glued it to the swingarm or to the back of the slider (requires more disassembly). Use your imagination...
You can do a search to find the details, but another fix is to take the grommet shaped washer from that rear attachment point and modify (bend) it, and that holds the slider from moving around so much.
