Hey giys needing some advice, I just bought this bike a couple of days ago and it didnt really smoke the day I went and looked at it or maybe I didnt really notice but now its smokes a pretty big puff of smoke when I let off the gas not while im giving it gas but as soon as I let off and it slows down smoke puffs out its like blue maybe...

Probably drawing some oil down the valve guides. How much oil does it use ?

Watched a customer :Bangin: take a brand new Arctic Cat atv down a dirt road behind the shop at full throttle for maybe 4 miles where he turned around and full throttle all the way back. Needless to say it smoked pretty good when he finally let off to stop at the shop again. Not an atv I would want to buy after that kind of treatment even if it had been broken-in properly. But that is just me.

An 07 with 240 miles and it smokes something is not right. That is less than 40 miles a year. It should be mint

My guess is someone changed out the speedo just to sell it. Did you check for the owners manual on the underside of the seat?

and will a prowler front diff fit my bike?
Check the part number for the housing, or the case halves. Then check the same part number for the prowler diff assembly or case halves. If they are the same, then part numbers do not lie.
If they are different, but the casings are the same, its probably because the differential is geared different, or rotates opposite direction, etc.
Just cause it fits don't mean it works!
