So, obviously some nasty things happen when the sprag clutch goes out.

Is there way to tell when it's starting to go, or does the dang thing just break without any warning?

Is there a certain mileage where you should rebuild it as a preventative maintenance measure?

Thanks in advance, mates.

The warning is that it starts making bad noises more often. The only preventative measures are to keep your battery, relay, and connections healthy and make sure to hold the starter button firmly till it starts to avoid excessive and repeated engagement.
