Your pictures make no sense. A miss engineered part should have the stresses start a failure in the same place every time. That looks like there was zero quality control on the material/manufacturing.

I am not worried I have your fork and pivot.

Is this a commercial for Versus or what?

I'm willing to bet that I'm not one of the lucky ones. The people who broke their forks were the unlucky ones. I'll bet the actual failure rate for clutch forks is very low.

And I'll believe that until my fork fails. (It'll probably will happen tomorrow since I doubted it.)

Among all the twins out there, of course it is low. It is a known issue if you have a stiffer aftermarket clutch. I have also known of a couple that have done it on all stock clutch setups. We were possibly thinking quick stabs on the clutch pedal probably don't help. The two that I know of that failed all stock where autoX guys, both at the pivot. Again, even among twin drivers out there, autox/track guys are a small number.
