I know there has been a lot of discussion about how the 2000 model chain rub plate eats away at the swingarm due to the chain slap. I have been monitoring my swingarm and sure enough there is a grove beginning to form!! I remember the cheap fix was to apply reticulated foam or weather stripping between the rub plate and swingarm. I'm very anal and I would rather perform a more scientific fix. Did someone mention that the 01 or 02 rub plate was constructed different and would fix this problem and it would fit on the 2000 model?
