Seems more likely that dirt or something else got into the cylinder and caused those marks. The YZF has a nikasil cylinder, not much can be done for damge done to it except for replating the cylinder or getting a new one if the damage is beyond limits.

A timing chain will not cause that damage. If your timing change was loose enough to cause damage, it would have skipped time and you would have bent valves.
