Chain too tight is the problem that causes the shaft wear. Many mechanics treat Dominators, Transalps etc as not dirt bikes but "sorta" road bikes and only requiring 20 to 30mm of chain slack instead of 40mm or more.
The shaft erodes because it is rigid but is difficult to repair/ replace, whereas the chain can stretch, and we expect the sprockets to wear out and then replace the lot.
