Jay (jam65) destroyed his.
Pushing 160hp probably didn't help.

I don't think so. Haven't heard of any others . I know that a few guys running the very first ones , and no problems there. 100-130 hp range
Baker said something to the effect... The first ones were contracted out, they are made in house now and have addressed the weak link.
Jay have you got your new one yet?

looks like to me they would be looking at some sort of redesign, something to make it beefier.that thing breaking in the primary could really fuk the bike up,not to mention the rider if it would lock up.

Yep,they said they would replace it."No questions asked".They gave me a return authorization number as well.
I'll probably get it sometime next year.
