XR650L Supermoto wheels and swingarm clearance

I am putting a set of 17's on my supermoto project which has a 1997 XR650L swingarm, it looks like there is a chain guard on the inside left leg side of the swingarm that will not clear the tire. I'm thinking it should go...can anyone confirm before I grind out some super important tab?:applause:

It is the chain guard support arm. Go ahead and cut it off. I used a zawsaw.

Great, thank you!

BTW, I always thought the slots on a rotor should be facing forward to alleviate stress fracture. I have the same rotor and I see the buttons have less clearance if you flip it, but anyone know for sure?
