It seems that your chain only slightly touching your tyre will be ok. If you can wipe your sidewall clean after a ride, and there's no loss of rubber, I wouldn't worry. Just keep it all adjusted how it works. Ride!
Thanks, i just went out to try some adjustments and realized that the back motor mount nuts were not even tight!! When i was riding it about a week back I did notice that the engine was extremely rattly. This did fix my tire problem.
Any day is a good day if i'm riding!!!
