Years ago when people rode DR350s hard Scotts sold stiffer swingarms that were said to make a huge improvement. I think Thumper also sold plates to be welded in just like you've done that were also reputed to be quite an upgrade. The swingarm is very flexy, just grabing and twisting the ends with the wheel removed it is notably less stiff than my XR or CR. Not an issue for casual dual sporting, but it does make it difficult to keep the bike pointed straight when the pace quickens.
