I personally would demand complete replacement of the entire FD, swingarm, shocks, driveshafts, and anything related. If they are not tripping over themselves to help you out I would take up the issue with NHTSA or a consumer protection agency. I don't like being a dickhead about most issues but this is beyond an acceptable typical warranty problem, this was a life threatning situation IMHO. You have to wonder about the quality control here and who's bike is next?
I just checked mine and the paint around those welds is cracked and chipping off indicating movement or flexing in the weld joints, I will be watching this closely.
