Deceleration noise

When using engine braking on my 954 I notice a sort of "zish" type noise which goes on until I pull the clutch in or throttle on again. Am I right in thinking this is the chain rubbing against the rubber guide on the top of the swingarm? The bike has done this since new and the chain adjustment is within spec.
