I had read a thread somewhere that mentioned that original iame leopard clutch is under warranty if defective. Im sure I am out of luck because I dont have a receipt but it had been replaced when the motor was rebuilt. I have had it part I can tell theres not many hours on the motor and the clutch is like new except where the metal broke. pictures here. IMG_1859.JPGIMG_1860.JPG
Personally I’m amazed that Rotax offers a warranty on their motors, I haven’t heard of an IAME clutch warranty but if you can get it that would be nice. You should also buy a spare since you’re planning on spinning that thing at 15k.
I’ve seen ’em break like this before, don’t believe it’s really a defect, just in the nature of how the part works. Be happy you’re not maintaining a disk clutch, or one of the old BURCO style units we had back in the day ;)
I don’t know of any warranty and what happened to your clutch is very common. I wouldn’t count on getting it or anything on a Leopard replaced for free, they wouldn’t be in business for very long if that happened!
