Help with build/refresh please - 2004 950 ADV

So subframe is off, the only thing left on the bike is the swingarm, forks and lights/dash.

I was soda blasting the subframe and I noticed the chain has been rubbing on the lower mount and eating into it. I dont have the chain guard as it didnt come with the bike (I have one on order) but it doesnt look like it extends far enough forward to stop this from happening.

Anyone have any ideas how I can stop this from happening? Im guessing im missing something vital as I can not find anyone else with this issue through search.

Also the hassle with getting shims in NZ is amazing. HD will only sell them in packs of 5 of the same size for $6 each shim. Hotcams is an option but as I need 4 of one size I would need a set plus a refill straight away :( Getting close to lapping the ones I have which is something I would rather not do, and even then I dont have enough thick enough to do that!

There should be a chain slider on the swingarm that wraps right around the front of the arm at the pivot end and protects the top and bottom of the swingarm.

As far a shims go, perhaps somebody here with a Harley dealer close by could order what you need and mail them to you...?

The slider is there. The swingarm is fine it looks like the chain is moving up to rub on the subframe. Ill take a pic when I get home but essentially looks like this:



I see they mention on the site I got that photo from about a slider with 2 guides but this seems to be an SMT specific part judging by the part numbers

And if someone wants to get me shims and post them I would be indebted.

The sizes I need are:
