    I red somewhere on the forum that there is a part for the GEN 2 that you can order from BMW (I searched and can not find it again). It is called Protection part no # 33351696865 (Protection - BMW-Motorrad (33351696865). It was said it is a Chain guard rattle noise reducer. It help with the clung that you get on your drive chain at low speed.

    Well I ordered it and it arrived and you fit it to the rear trailing arm and it use double sided tape to stick.

    I would like to know if someone fitted it with a possible photo of where and how.

    Part can be found as reference #21 in illustration

    I had it on my first gen2. It was meant to avoid the chain hitting the swingarm. If that happened you can see the damage on the swingarm  by looking over the chain with a flashlight from the rear, and that's where it goes :164:
    It's not n my 2nd bike, and no damage yet, but i'll ask for the part. It was for free the first time. On a german XR forum I read people make the chain more quiet by glueing additional strips under the swingarm protector, the long plastic strip, so it sits a little higher

    Salem is right. It is a small plastic guard that sticks to the swingarm to protect it from the chain. On mine, chain started grinding the swingarm and I got this protection fitted for free, under warranty.
    BMW never made a general recall because of this, but they are fitting it for free if you report the issue to tour dealer

    I just had a look and my 2023 model have it already. So I now have a spare one.

    I see the chain made a grove in it. So this gadget did not solve the problem. I will see if I can stick some more plastics to the swing arm to remedy the clung.

    Thanks for the response. I appreciate it.

    Actually it did its job. You have a groove in the protector, not in the very expensive swing arm.
