I have a number of customer with Kawis running Shoguns with no issues, including some that have gone down. I wouldn't stress out about it.
My right side has been through a crash or two, and it's just fine. The left side wasn't so lucky. I wish Kawi would do what Yamaha does and place it in the meat of the swingarm instead of under it.

Suzuki does the same as Kawi, go figure.
That said, the extrusion cast swingarms remind me of the old pewter antigues my Grandmother used to collect; fragile.
