my swing arm does have scratches from my boosts also. i seen some carbon fiber pieces that you install with some 2way tape. i forgot the site though. if i find it ill post it. i seen some other guys just put stirps of electrical tape. then just change it every once in a while. thats what i will probably do.

With the stock rearsets, the heelguard prevented my heels from scraping the swingarm. When I switched to the gilles rearsets, the left side was fine because it had a heelguard, but the right side didn't have one, so I scraped some of the black paint off the swingarm. The swingarm, itself, isn't scratched, but the paint came off a little. oh well, man. Hopefully, somebody will figure out a better solution than tape. Until then, the damage is already done... Well at least people know that I ride her hard...
