dont belive the "no warranty" signs. I sent in an os speed, and they replaced the leaking front bearing free of charge.

Big price difference between a front bearing and a crank.

Still asking... Did you contact OS? Please call and talk to them so they can determine what to do instead of just assuming they won't do anything. At least give them a chance to take care of this.

13 liters later? Then, The only thing that would cause that is torquing the clutch nut down to tight. If it was defective from the start it would have broke 13 liters ago.

i would definately call or just send it in to os. i had a bad bearing in my motor and it came apart after a gallon of fuel and the replaced the whole motor. I was shocked. sometimes all it takes is a phone call.
