Default Mega ZX21 Recall

My latest Mega ZX engine's crank shaft was broken into pieces while running in, talked to dealer, and finally i get another one.
Yesterday, i heard Serpent is going to recall this engine.
Is it true?

I also heard the similar rumar..........from source in HK....

Hk Serpent dealer addressed (not confirmed by Serpent) they will have a replacment CONROD and Crankshaft for the existing ZX21 owner..........but not a full replacement engine.
But again.....that is not confirmed by Serpent....but from other thread (I think I saw that from the ENGINE thread here in Rctech), some from Serpent saying they will have announcment later this week or next week....

Can I just request new parts or do they have to be broken?
