Between the Master and the swingarm. The pre-bent metal pipe assembly (they made it beefier this year) can be routed too close to the swingarm. If you take the arm though the path of travel, youll see what im talking about. You will need to carefully bend the assembly. The ones that have been bad - are very close to the arm and need to be moved about another 1/2 inch away from the SA. Bend it until it clears - but watch out you dont bend it too much - just until it clears.

Pics off my 2011 that is OK for clearance.
