Just for shits and giggles I did some research because I'm gonna be getting stiffer boots at the end of the season and BOA seems like the way to go, so;

K2 doesn't exactly warranty their BOA boots but if one breaks within 1 year (warranty period) maybe you can call em up and work something out.
Support | K2 Snowboarding Read option 5 then 10.

BOA has a spare parts shop directly on their website but you can't order directly online, probably gotta call em.
Boa Technology Inc.

And using my partner in crime, the almighty search button I found this thread.

and this one too

All in all I got the K2 Pulse, their entry level boot and it has a pretty good lacing system too, no complaints, but yeah I'm sold on BOA, if it was utter crap it wouldn't be so widespread (don't quote me on that statement :X)

Almost any shop that sells Boa has a Boa replacement kit. I used to fix knobs and cables daily last winter, usually just minor shit that goes wrong with older boots. I've ridden Boa now since 03 and I won't go back, in that time only had a knob break cause I bounced off a rock and tree, and 2 cables had minor fraying so I replaced them.

Check your knob every once in a while to make sure it's tight, just like checking your binding screws.
