Yep just slap some tape over it. I have seen guys use skateboard grip tape there.

Why do you guys say use grip tape?

I dont want my boot sticking/grinding on the swingarm...
It did the best job, for me, at not grindin through again, and also it kinda helped as it gave me something to hook my heal into..

BTW, you gona come 2night?

I think it depends on the size of your foot too. My swingarm looked five times worse than that, but my buddy's bike is barely touched like your swingarm. Difference being, I wear a size 15 tennis shoe and he wears a size 10.5 tennis shoe. But either way, your shit is getting jacked yo!

Why would you want to hook your heel on it? Your swingarm needs to move when you're leaned over too ya know...

when i had my 03 r6 happens quite often.. tried to use a black permenant market.. but that only last for 2 days.

.. i dont think it happens on the r1 at all.. .at least not yet on my r1, just on the r6. it gives the bike character.

Agreed.

I would hate it if my heel was up against the swingarm and the suspension was going up and down with my foot moving with it.

Just live with it. It's a sign that you're actually riding the bike like you should. :thumbup
