You need to pull (bend) the bottom of your plate out toward the rear a bit more AND add some more preload to your rear shock. I had the same 'issue' on an FZ-1 after doing a fender eliminator on it. Everything was fine until I put a Ventura bag on the bike and went to visit a friend in Tennessee. Hit a bump and...plate got caught and bent like yours. A little bending of the plate out of the way and some more pre-load dialed in and problem was resolved for good.
