Check this out! Cought in time...I guess....!
This pictures are from my 1200XLT. It was at the mechanic having the carbs rebuilt and taking the oil pump out to mix the oil directly with the fuel...When the guy took the head off to put the stinger pipe back in while I waited for it to be done to finally take it home this is what the piston looked like The cylinder wall is damaged by the piston ring being twisted and rubbed up and down who knows for how long. Funny thing is that I would have sworn that the ski had been running good Well, the bill keeps adding on Sorry for the crappy pics, cel phone quality.

When the engine is run lean like in the top picture the exhaust will get higher then 1500 (witch is the melting point for most piston) and will burn the exhaust side. Thy alway run the best right be for thy melt down lol

How much do you guys think this should cost?....the head is intact....so it would be the cylinder, piston, rings...possible bearings, seals.....
