I have wear from the chain on the top of my swingarm, not the wear guards, but on the swingarm itself. anyone else getting this? my chain is adjusted in spec, and i dont understand why its hitting the swingarm.

What the hell is all over your chain? It looks like snow or something.
looks really corroded
my guess is your chain needs to be adjusted (and lubed)

Go get your chain re-tensioned by your dealer before you saw thru the swingarm.

Definitely a tension issue. When you are using the engine brake during deceleration, tension on the chain is reversed (tension is felt below the swing arm) and any slack will droop above the swing arm. This will cause the marks you are seeing.

Is your eccentric 'up' or 'down' ?

Not sure if that's possible, I don't have one....

Defintely looks like your chain is too loose, and you probably should replace it while you're at it.
