Bolts shared off from flexing the frame ??

Hi all,
I have 2 bolts that have been shared off. They are from the right side grey cover just above the foot peg. I was wondering has anyone else had this problem? Would have had quite a bit of flex in the frame to cut the bolts. 2 bolts are still holding.

I have done 20,000 km on the 310 r with some top speed rides over bumpy back roads with high powered motorcycles.

couldn't post the pic


Going to BMW to find out in case it falls apart at 130 kph lol

Haven't seen this mentioned before. Have the bolts fallen completely out or has the nut simply been broken off the bolt? Have you mentioned it to your dealer? Would be interested in hearing the response lol.

Sheared bolts

Yeah, I wanted to post a pic but the site says I can't yet. The bolts have sheared off so the end of the bolts is still in the frame.
I haven't taken to dealer yet but I will send an email with a pic. You wouldn't think the cover would be a structural support for the frame but must be something they are decent size bolts to.
I'm still riding to work but will get fixed before a long weekend ride.
