I have a brand new foreman. Its a month old. When I was riding this afternoon I noticed it losing power. I stopped and checked the oil. It was perfect. So I keep riding, then I noticed it was smoking white smoke every now and then. So I stopped and checked the oil again. Samething it was perfect. I decideed to head home then it went dead. When I went to crank it up it was making a horriable noise like screcking and knocking. Now the starter hardly turns it over and it is making the noises. We changed the oil and oil filter yesterday but I have rode 10 miles since then so I need some input.

they told me that a stick punctured it. I doubt that it really happend that way.
they will tell you what they wont you to belive so that you will think it were your fault and you will have to pay for it because it takes them a while before they get the money on a warrenty job

You should of asked them to show you where it punctured it. You would be able to tell if it were ripped.
Seams like an All Terain Vehicle could handle a stick from tearing up vehicle, or change name to something other than "All"
I believe it, a corn stalk took out front output shaft seal on my 03 Rinny. They showed me the piece after it was removed, needless to say I invested in some armor.

I guess the only thing that sounds fishy is the oil filter deal.
i've seen the damage sticks can do to seals and boots, i just wouldn't believe a shop unless they showed me.
