Your chain slider and guide are finished, replace them with a TM Design as they will last.

Thanks for the adviced! Will do that asap.

 

Could that be the case of a "chain sound" I hear sometimes when I am in a gear that's too high for my speed?

Normally the chain slaps against the slider on the top of the swingarm which makes a noise and it worse if the chain is very loose or the slider is worn, if the slider is ok then remove it and stick some automotive double sided tape between the slider and swingarm , 2mm tape will work.
