Engine Failure Pioneer 700-4

My 2014 Pioneer 700-4 had engine failure. I purchased the machine new and have roughly 1000 miles of very light use on dirt and gravel roads. The dealer said the cam chain broke, wrecked other engine parts, and Honda won't help because the machine is out of warranty. Minor problems I would understand, but Honda engines are supposed to be bulletproof!! Huge bill from the dealer to fix this engine failure!!!!

Has anyone else had a problem like this or have any suggestions?

Cam chain fail or the adjuster? Was there a lot of high rpm going down the roads? Chains stretch and usually fall off the cam sprocket. Seen it on a few Rincons and BigReds but not with that low of miles. A lot of high speed driving will stretch the chain faster.

Apparently both failed, the dealer didn't say which failed first. My driving was very light - no extended high RPM riding at all. Putting around the property, a little bit of logging road trail riding, and running over to visit friends a few miles away on dirt roads. I've had many Honda ATV's (and still own 3) and am extremely disappointed by this EXPENSIVE failure!!!
