that's heartbraking man. really sorry to hear that. hopefully husky will take care of it. it sucks that you are going to be out of a ride for a while and that it's a brand new bike.

broken piston

keep us informed as to what the call is on the problem. was it low octane gas ?? defective piston ?? did you over-rev and damage the piston, checked your valves lately ?? forensic testing should tell something. :rolleyes2:

Is that as in, they gave you a "new" bike, or a "loaner" bike?

Just curious, are you a "break it in like you stole it" kinda guy?

It is completely new bike, and I did not ride it like I stole it.
From forensics, bike did not have shims on intake valve.

Cool, at least they stepped up and gave you a new bike! :thumbup:

Wow, someone at the factory is going to catch hell for this!
