Good luck to you Sir. No answers here, but I'm watching JIC.

Be safe.

I do not see any questions, and it looks like you have all the answers already. Without more information or some actual questions, members here will not be able to offer much more than generalities.
If the front sprocket has the proper offset for the new rear wheel and sprocket, and if the rear tire is the proper size for the donor bike, then the chain will not hit the tire. The chain may, however, hit the frame or the sprocket cover.
You say that you know the swingarm will fit. How do you know this? Does that include knowing how the shock linkage and mounts are going to be modified? Pivot bolt diameter? Will the new rear wheel still be centered with the frame? Is the new swingarm significantly shorter or longer that the Kawasaki one? Will the new rear suspension be able to fully compress without hitting the frame?
Will the new rear brake work with the 550 rear master cylinder, or will a custom mount be needed to install the new master and foot pedal?
There are many things to consider, but your post does not indicate whether or not they all have been.
