Thanks for the info guys he did say the top end was re-built by a professional mechanic with a receipt to prove it. So I take it I should be in the clear for the faulty crank? He also mentioned it has a few hundred miles on it since the rebuild so it should be close to being broke in as well am I correct?
not neccasarely, my friend brought his sled to dealer for top end(pistons,rings) and they told him his crank should be rebuilt too. he said "no i will just sell sled anyway".
id hate to be the guy too get that Poo

I bought an 07 2 years ago for $4000. rode it 500km then crank went @ 2800 miles. New topend and crank was $1200 and I did all the assembly. Brand new 800R Summit under $10,000 with flex track and s36 front on an on. Buy new with a 3 year bumper to bumper! wish I did. now I am stuck with the old stuff.

Any used sled may have hidden damage. I bought my 04Rev & 08XP two years ago and the Rev had lots of hidden issues including engine(somehow compression test said good).
The XP definetly needed a new top end when brought home from dealer used. luckily they paid for the parts and i did the labour.
