I also believe this scenario:
miss a shift here and there (happens to everyone)
this causes the dogs to round out slightly
the more the round out, the more shifts get missed
eventually it causes the gear to ramp in and out because there is no longer a square edge on the dog
This causes the dog to snap off.
On road bikes the dogs also round out, but the generally have more meat there. What I've done on a zx7 is had a friend machine the face of the dog to make it square again.
Unfortunately there isnt enough meat left on the 426 gears to do this. This is the price we pay for light weight.
