Another factor that can contribute to the shoulder problem is helmet weight. I rode with a Scorpion EXO700 for years on my previous DL650 and now my DL1000 (same Puig windscreens, etc.)... then about a year ago I started getting lots of pain in my neck and shoulders. I had an opportunity to step up to a Shoei X-11. The helmet is lighter in weight than the Scorpion and the pain went away in about 3-4 weeks.
You might consider asking Santa for a new helmet (especially now at the end of the season when there are so many great sales going on).
