Thanks for the write up.
A couple of things come to mind:
I wonder if shaving off weight is starting to reach the breakeven point (no
pun intended). This is particularly in reference to the swing arm which, as
I recall, BMW say is lighter and "stronger" than previous. They may have
been referring to torsional rigidity. It is conceivable that once the
designed strength is exceeded it fails more spectacularly.
The bump stop is built into the dampers. Is it at all possible that the
bump stop in the Wilbers is a firmer one which would cause more stress in
the conditions you describe?
Glad your insurer "came to the party".
