yep, it's not like there in the business of making the shock mount needlessly strong and therefore heavy. I'm sure some FEA was conducted and determined the minimum amount of material to handle the loads they planned on seeing.

And it's not unheard of for pro's to find weak points. My understand is Taddy bends shock mounting bolts on the KTM on a regular basis.
