    Does anybody know..........

    What the hell happen here?................Got bored today decided to work in the garage and tinker around. I decided to do some checking on my 1500 single. I took the head off to inspect the pistons. This is what I seen on #3. 1 & 2 pistons are fine, all 3 cyls are fine. I've had this ski running on it's 5th season. everything looks fine. Now I have to buy a 90mm piston. Oh the rings on the piston are perfect.

    Well to me the others look fine, I'll go out and snap them, I think if I waited till summer and went riding it would have went. The plug looks fine. I'll be back

    These are the other two pistons. The head looks fine also. I looked at the plugs, nothing damaged.

    Pretty clear to me Frank. It was lean. Remember two years ago when you brought it back with your triple and I had to readjust the carbs because you had them screwed up and it would not run worth crap. Yup, I had to richen them up and add 100 rpms on top. Thats why I tell you to leave stuff alone. Now tell everybody why you are taking a 80 mph single apart right now that has ran great for 5 years.

    Weather now? 45deg. But the last time I rode this was Labor Day. I never touch the carb screws. I never done anything to this ski for the past few yrs. Gas&oil and ride. no engine problems whats so ever in 4 seasons.
