replace swingarm???

I noticed the chain slider on my 2003 was badly worn. So I ordered a new one and removed the old chain slider. After removing the chain slider, I noticed grooves in the under side of the swing arm. It is as though a loose chain in the past has whipped up into the swingarm and worn grooves into it.

Anyone familiar with this? Cause for alarm? Time to replace the swingarm?

Anyone have a used swingarm in average (undamaged) shape for sale?

Sorry, no picture.

I have newly re-furbished one available....$600 shipped.
Its tricky but it can be TIG welded were its been worn through and ground flush.
Its a tricky weld job because of the foam inside the swing arm in that area.
