To prevent this from happening again, I'm going to make a reinforcement piece in ABS plastic.
Sounds a good Idea BUT be careful you don`t invalidate the warranty by doing that. I`d check with the Dealer you bought it from first as to whether it would or wouldn`t just to be sure.

Hi Bors, you 'r right. But
I will not modify anything on the coil ( no glue...) but the part will hang on the base of the coil and the ribs, with of course the fixation lugs in which the original screw goes. I saw that a guy proposes a file for 3d printing on the net, I will be inspired by this piece.

This will reduce the stresses on the legs during the swinging motion,
if anything happens the coil is like the origin

Re my previous reply,do not do any mod to the lugs that requires any glueing/fixing in any way or your warranty will be void.After all the warranty is 3 years even with a new owner,
