Guess what happened to my RXP...
I was riding Saturday with the Kerr Lake group and decided to head for the boat ramp. It was my only time alone on the water in 2 days. I was about 5 miles from the boat ramp cruising between 6500 and 7000 rpms when all of a sudden she lost power and died. I tried to start her back up and she would turn over but not start. (I sat for 45 minutes waiting for a tow and finally a nice fisherman came by and helped after several others passed on by.)
When I got home I did a compression test with the following results...cylinder 1: 0 psi...cylinder 2: 35 psi...cylinder 3: 0 psi. I emailed Glen at PPG and he told me what he thought had happened. I checked it out today and he was dead on right.
So, what do you guys think happened based on what I told you? I'll post a pic later tonight so you can see what happened.

well you lost compression...so could be head gasket or piston rings....
or oil was cut off and locked it up...unless it was turning over

The RR ECM ran the ski lean at those RPM's causing it to seize up?

If I remember correctly you were the guy that had PPG put on all the goodies and an RR ECU and didn't get the valve train upgrade???
So did you float a valve or are these not symptoms of that? Whatever it is, sorry about your bad luck and I hope it doesn't hit your wallet too hard.
