More info on this here : Motorcycle News

"It seems over tightening the rear wheel flange which mounts the rear brake disc to the swingarm
can cause cracks and potential failure", and is being replaced Free of Charge with a more robust part.

Affects all R and K series models between November 2003 and April 2011.

Sounds like a very  pragmatic aproach being taken by BMW  :028:
