146 hours later...
Gus on his Seadoo RXT had to tow in my Yamaha Gpr today...
Engine suddenly stopped while cruising over chop around 50 mph..
My trusty 1300 died a gruesome death today..
Crank rod bearing siezed but before it did it was nice enough to spit out pieces of bearing and attack an innocent piston!
Crank, piston, head... The usual victims....
On the end of the magnet is the crankpin bearing that made it to the top of the piston and got pummelled..
Cylinder escaped serious injury.. Will clean up just fine...

Damn, you didnt waste any time. Hey I wasnt going to say anything about towing you in.
I wouldnt think it should be that bad to get it back together though. Sounds like you put quite some time and years on that engine so thats good.
