It's #9 on the parts diagram. Don't have a pic to post here, but how often do you change it out? I noticed mine didn't look too good when I replaced chain and sprockets.
Just wondering

I changed mine at 50,000 miles. As long as it is changed before it is worn clear through so the chain won't be sawing aluminum, it's okay. It seems the wear is worse on the bottom, especially for those who prefer loose chains, so make sure you look there.

I'll for sure look on the bottom.
Thanks

So, from looking at the diagram, am I to assume that replacing that requires removal of the swingarm?

Wow.. I didn't even realize there was one on the bottom. Seconding the above question. Thanks for bringing this up eagleeye.

It's one piece. The swingarm has to be released from its pivot to change it. It can be done without removing the exhaust pipe, but just barely.

Eye, checked my '04. 93K miles and it is worn but not severely.
I'd imagine that checking the bearings while taking it apart might be a plan.
