I don't know if anyone remembers my thread about my broken 450sm which I don't have the money to pay for but, to enlighten you I'll retell the story because I need some opinions. It's an 06 with fewer than 3000 miles on it. It started making an intense chatter one day last August so I put it away and checked it out. Turns out I had a faulty rod bearing and blew it. Most of the motor was destroyed including the cylinder, rod, pistons, gaskets exc. The repairs are costing me about 2 grand which I have now saved. I find out this week weather Husky is going to pay for the damage or not. In either case, if i pay for it , or if i don't I'm extremely paranoid about having future problems with the bike. Do you think this is a fluke? I wasn't even that hard on the bike... I do not have the money to pay for any repairs like this (Student in College) so the question is do I keep her and keep the fun or sell her for something with some more cylinders, something more streetable. I have not had a problem with keeping up with maintenance. I would just die if this thing broke again after pouring nearly every penny I have made throughout the school year into the motor. I work at Brockton Cycle center where I could possibly be getting hooked up but we can't order Husky parts at cost like with other Japanese Dealer. The 2 grand is mostly parts and no labor. Can I trust the Husky or should I play it safe and buy something else?
