    Kaboom goes the 1300 XLT

    So after a few weeks of riding my 1300 EFI xlt my rear cylinder goes out. The other two pistons and cylinder are prestine. But the third one, well it took a major DUMP. The only thing I did different from my gpr was make it premix. The wrist pin bearings are all over the place. The motor has never been apart. 80+ hours on the motor. I did more damage trying to get back to shore and thats probably why it looks so bad. Definately going to need cylinder repair as I gouged the ever living sheezbot out of it. But thought I'd post up pics of the carnage, Enjoy as it made my stomach turn. Part of the piston skirt disappeared too, hahaha.

    I thought premixing helps here or is it another issue?
