Well I dropped the engine of at LPB and Ian noticed the flaw in the cast and said there should be no problem with the warranty but Ian being the gentleman he is said either way he will sort it.

I also mentioned to Ian to insist that they also replace the saddle on the opposite side because that took all the weight and could have weakened it, as I don't want the other side going on me next time I'm on holiday or just out for the day
Lets hope BRP agree.
