I certainly haven’t seen that before. Any ideas what caused it? Have you spoken to AF?

I have not spoke with AF yet but I intend to as only discovered yesterday. You can buy this part separately so that makes me a little suspicious to begin with.

Serious question, why sell a part that is no added benefit as it’s not an upgrade but replacement, unlike the rest of the clutch components, eg changing the basket for different teeth amounts or consumables as in plates and steels. IMO the only reason to sell replacement Bell is an acceptance that it could fail.

maybe but i I think most manufacturers of assembles make a selection of spares not necessarily for failure but wear and tear i know we do in the business were in

The centre with the alloy columns for the screws is also available as a spare... I've already needed 2 of them.

These last 8 years!

That is a spectacular failure I wouldn't have considered. AF is usually really responsive by e-mail regarding their products. I seriously doubt they'd leave you out to dry.
