Default EC 2018 and 2019 Swingarm makes contact with engine case

This week we found on a 2019 Ranger, a 2018 GP 300 and my EC 300 2019 that the swing arms right hand sides make contact with the engine cases.

The pics show my second 2019 with right engine cover removed. The bike is brand new, zero hours.

That's weird.

I would loosen up all the motor mount and swing arm bolts. See if you can shift the motor forward.

Mine touches also, when I get around to checking the linkage bearings I'll pop the swingarm out and "clearance" it a bit
