    2002 Polaris Genesis No compression On middle cylinder.

    I have a 2002 Genesis Fuel Injected. It was running great and then it started running really rough. I checked the compression and the middle cylinder was 0. What could be the problem? Thanks for all your help

    Probably a burnt piston. Pull the head and take a peek.

    I was finally able to pull the head off. The piston looked great, was not burnt or anything. What could be the problem?

    Was the o ring in place or any damage to the dome?
    Is the cylinder wall scored (Rotate the engine so the piston is low in the cylinder)
    Photo?

    looking at pic, piston top on edge seems slight bulge usally broken rings, remove cylinder slowly wrap a cloth round con rod. befre parting piston and cylinder, to catch broken rings, so they dont jump in crank case
