Angry Getting F****d By Ride Now

Just a note to let everyone know how worthless the extended warranty's are at ride now and looking for some input on this situation.

I have an 07 Rhino with 45 hours and 450 miles on motor. I have had three oil changes done in 45 hours run time (three times the reccomended amount from manual) last weekend riding at 30 mph the thing died so I brought it into ride now and after the guy telling me I had no oil, I showed him it was 1/2 way up the dipstick with it screwed in he said the oil is to be checked without the dipstick being screwed in, I checked on my buddies rhino and it took 6 oz of oil to bring it to the correct level.

They are saying it is a low oil failure and they want $1800 to put a new crank in. What is puzzeling is the barrel, piston and upper connecting rod bearing is like brand new? wouldnt low oil smoke upper bearing before the lower bearing? wouldnt there be scoring on the cylinder? maybe I am missing something so I wanted to ask your opinions on this. I think I am in the process of getting fucked.

Any input on this type of failure would be apprecited. I just think its wierd for the lower bearing to fail with no wear what so ever anywhere else in the motor.

Did you have this posted on RF.net? it sounds familiar? You let them take it apart? I agree with what you are saying 100% but you shouldn't have let them touch it! The wrist pin would fail before the crank, go get your rhino back and take it to a real shop!

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

ya this is my good bro i was posting about the other day..hopefully some of our engine gurus will chime in here and give us some insite as to what the fuck is going on with your failure.
Isn't this a common thing for the stock motor ?
Or do you guys think it has been caused by the lack of 6oz of oil, mind you he never got an temp light or overheated we were just doing a mild cruise with the families..
hey reese so what was the end result in your so called warranty that they tried changing to a service plan.

Pay the diag. charge, take the rhino, cancel the bs warranty. If they say yu can't cancel it they are lieing to you. If he never had a warranty claim he should get a pretty big part of it back.
