Here is the findings from the previous (pre 02) models failures in USA after they had a total of 4 failures recorded to them (out of a pool of 4300 bikes).

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/defects/results.cfm

put in case number:PE09026

I am a kiwi so have no idea what the NHTSA does or stands for but a summary of thier findings in the older case was...

THERE IS NO DATA CONCLUSIVELY ESTABLISHING THAT THE SUBJECT FORK LUGS ARE SEPARATING BEFORE AN ALLEGED CRASH OCCURS. ADDITIONALLY, THE INFREQUENT, SPORADIC, AND RANDOM NATURE OF THE FAILURES FAILS TO ESTABLISH A DEFECT TREND CURRENTLY EXISTS. A SAFETY-RELATED DEFECT HAS NOT BEEN IDENTIFIED AT THIS TIME AND FURTHER USE OF AGENCY RESOURCES DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE WARRANTED.

The new one posted by Antique widow is now online BTW.
