02 gtx rfi intermittent bog then blew up
what would have caused my brothers gtx rfi to blow up? we were riding today, everything was fine running good, then the gtx would bog then take off again. It did it a couple times then would barely go 5 mph then take off again, then it just died. towed it back we think the rear cylinder piston let go, spark plug was hit. What would have caused the bogging, so when we rebuild the motor, we wont have to worry about it blowing up again?
Thanks in advance

your right, but what I was asking is what would cause the bogging, then acceleration? maybe it was just the motor going south, but just curious if it were injector, or something like that. Trying to make sure it dont blow up again.

If it was a rod bearing...had the engine ever been submerged in water? Hydrolocked? Normaly you get less than 10-15 hours after a hydrolock before the rod bearing lets go.
