KRS9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Broken Shock

I think i already know the answer to this but i want to be sure before i make a warranty run at it. To me it looks like a machining flaw seeings how its not centered and is only on the one side. Coincidentally its where it broke too.

Looks like a poor casting to me. Possibly has been "failing" for a while, depending how quick that rust turned up!

Yes, you should always contact the armchair experts online for a warranty coverage opinion (assuming your buggy is still under warranty) for metallurgical analysis of marginal resolution pix.

It's broken.
Give it to your dealer and tell him to hurry up 'cause there still will be snow left in the hills after planting is done...

No because my shock guy was telling me about WE having hollow shafts on some. Kid I ride with broke one he said not uncommon.
Didn't look that close at the sticker on reservoir, looked again can't make out a W on my phone. Wouldn't know if WE is only shock out there using black and silver decals. And they sure as hell aren't the only ones with reservoirs. Maybe you know by a blur of a manufacturer decal, but I don't.
So keep your snide *** comments to yourself.

Yep it’s a clicker needle WE resi shock.
Pretty obvious just looking at them as you mentioned.

One of mine broke just like that at the end of the needle hollow.

Definitely weaker than the 1/2” solid shaft shocks.
