here are a couple messages on a motorcycle forum from the previous owner before I bought the bike, I found this a few months after the purchase, would this be enough evidence he knew about the problem?
ust had this happen to me this morning.
Bike has 400 miles, it now has a different exhaust note and does have a pop when starting the bike.
Sadly this is enought for me and this will be my last european motorcycle.
Will call Shane and motorcycle factory have him fix it and trade it in.
Wish i could say is been fun. But it hasnt.

I knew i was going to get some flak.
Is not like is been fun and games.
As soons as i brought it home she was leaking from the sproket counter shaft. With 0 miles. Took almost 2 months to get the part an approval from Husky. Didnt get to ride last year because of that. Once it got fix i was happy ajd wrote it off as something that could had happen to any bike.
Fast foward and i start to ride thr bike and now this.
I could understand if the bike was old or had a bunch of miles. But it does not.
I am just not willing to take more chances. With the luck i have had with this bike it would break in the middle of nowhere.
Is not about turning wrenches. I was a mechanic for 7 years, no stranger to oil ajd tools. But once again this is a nee bike. Reallity is that QC and some engineering on this bike are crap.
Is not the exhaust note why i am trafing it, something is wrong internally now. Who knows how long till it gets fix. I want to ride my bikes not have them torn down half the time.
