the swingarm angle becomes inverted once lowered with both of yall on the bike, and the extensions wiill be at an inverted angle to the swingarm itself and with the rotation of the chain putting upward force on the back of the extensions accompanied with road conditions it will put a lot of tension on the end of the swingarm where it meets the extension and will cause a stress fracture.

look at the pic off ur bike, see how shallow of an angle the swingarm is at with nobody on it? put u on it and ur girl and itll be inverted at the pivot and inverted where the extension bolts up and will eventually crack from the bottom up, right in the Z in ZX on the chain side. I had those exact same ones

Unlower the bike a little bit. Itll definently help with that. Is your suspension set up for you? If not, add a turn of preload to the shock and make the compression stiffer, like 1/2 turn out from full hard.
