Please see attached picture. I was using my venom rear stand which lifts using the swingarm and I heard a bit of what sounded like plastic cracking. When I got the bike back off the stand and felt underneath it felt like I pushed something into this hole on the left swingarm, but I can't fish it out to see what it is. The right swingarm also has an empty hole, and I didn't fish anything out there either. No nearby GSX-S1000s to check out near me. Swingarm removal from the bike is beyond my ability at this point but if it's just a minor cover or something I won't worry about it.

Thanks for any info!

Likely just a casting element when the swingarm is made. They likey extract whatever sacrificial element is used to form the void through here when the casting is complete. Aluminium swingarm so no concerns for oxidation regardless.
