Chain slap?

I've seen a couple of references to this. Is this a case of a poorly designed chain guard? I'm wondering if the aftermarket will fix it.

Possible but doubtfull, depends what your chain is slapping against, its mostly the swingarm i believe, chain slap is mostly as a result of a poorly adjusted chain.

I thought it was this that i heard when i rode mine home. After some time I realised it was the exhaust. Some other clever clogs has stated it is due to the Catalytic Converter.

Mine has had no issue with chain slapping
