ST3 Closer Spring

Sometime between my last service in Dec. ‘18 to the service this month my Duc dealer found a exhaust closer/helper spring had broken. It was on the vertical cylinder.
I didn’t notice any change in sound, running, etc. so nothing clued me in it had broken. Current mileage is 27,020.
They retrieved the stray finger from the oil screen, glad it was doing its job. Interesting it made its way there without causing any havoc.
Something else for reference; the current Ducati replacement is a two piece spring it seems. They didn’t realize this and only ordered “half” the parts to do the job. So it took an extra week, but no complaints here. Thought you guys might like to see the hardware.

IIRC they started with 2 springs on the exhaust and then switched to 1 stiffer spring. The early soft springs would alow for poor low rpm running and if a spring breaks you get the same effect. Rare to happen but I do stock a exhaust spring... just in case for when they no longer make them.

Ducati did it for free on my wife's '05. They said it was a known issue. Some where around 2006.

The last few digits of my VIN are 004258; I don’t have a feel if that is early or not.
I sort of think no, but that’s just a WAG.
