I completely agree with this statement. But here it should be noted exactly how the manufacturer decided to do.

I also agree that it's not about the effort of the springs. Not in it the cause of failure. Many users, and you, using BPP with red springs for years. And this at a time when the manufacturer used an ordinary ball bearing. And there were no problems. As I see, the representative of Barnett is present here for a long time and he never mentioned that he does not recommend the use of red springs. He was silent. But as soon as the complaint appeared, the representative immediately referred to the suspension of warranty obligations.

If that radial Koyo bearing that I put in place of the broken one also broke, I would accept the barnett version about red springs, the version of any one about failure, accidental failure without explanation. But in my case, everything is obvious. The bearing in the current version of BPP is crappy.

My task was to show the error of barnett. I conducted an experiment by installing an ordinary rolling bearing in BPP. And BPP worked correct with it almost twice the distance.

So now I will ask Barnett a question again to confirm their decision of the warranty. It will not surprise me if they continue to refer to the use of red springs and refuse support. But if in the subsequent batches of the BPP the bearing is replaced, it will actually prove their wrong calculation, their mistake in choosing the components.

I want to repeat the fact, in our country, especially in large cities, there is much more dense traffic and traffic between the lanes is not a crime. Therefore, we use the "gray zone" of clutch much more often and more intensively. It is from here that some messages about the destruction of the BPP bearing (and the factory plate, sometimes) even with soft gold springs. Speech about cases with an ordinary radial bearing. I suppose that in case of using BPP with a bearing with a textolite separator there will be more complaints. And, I think, on both sides of the ocean.

In any case, in the current situation, the choice of bearing is wrong. Mistake. Everyone can. It is only important to respond correctly. Time will tell.
