That's what mine looks like...I have an early '14 model and it didn't have that protection band aid... noticed this when I was replacing my brake lines for braided lines.
It's completely rubbed off to the metal, I'll need to touch it up now. thankfully the new lines don't come anywhere close to the swingarm.
good call but at least a plastic fender is easier to fix than a swingarm. I'm pretty upset with the rash on my swingarm, the Spiegler lines are much thinner than the OEM and the rash shows up very easily.also keep an eye on the front brake lines as they can rub the fender. i have spieglers and on full fork compression the right brake line (alt routing) will rub. i put some matte black vinyl tape over the area.
