    The damage is from hard material.... rings or crank parts.

    My first guess would be that your crankshaft has gone into self-destructo mode, and is shedding parts. It's hard to say from those pics, since once a ring breaks off, it can cause similar destruction.

    yeah the ring did come apart! there is about 2 in of it missing! so what would make the ring come apart?? that was a new piston with only 15 hours on it!!

    is the alignment pin for the ring still in place? I had mine come out and cause the ring to spin and shear in the exhaust port, I had several small pieces imbedded on top of the piston with similar damage to head mine was on a 99GP with the steel sleeves.

    no this is not a ring spin. i just got it back together this year after a ring spin last year! my question is how and why did that ring break in the middle of the ring??
