I fought with Mancuso north for a while about it. They wanted to rebuild the engine for 10,500ish with 2,500 being my out of pocket. Finally they let me put in a used engine off ebay so I had ZERO out of pocket due to an extended warranty I bought.

I saw the engine when I picked it up and it was seriously up. piston dam near melted into cylinder and valves all up on the same cylinder. They asked what I did and all that and tried to say it was high revs etc etc. I only rode it to pick up groceries on Sundays so I doubt I it up.
