    Oil Pressure light, then BOOM ! Engine Blew.

    While riding this weekend ( 2007 250x ), my oil pressure light came on and immediately afterward, i hear this loud boom from the engine. The engine literally blew and there was smoke everywhere and I had to be towed. It made for a terrible day on the water. I'm sure the engine blew up or something. Of course it isn't under warranty.

    Just wanted some opinions on what to do ? Scrap it and get another one ? Try to get the engine repaired ? Or sink it in the river ?

    Any ideas on what might be wrong with the engine ? I'd like to sell it as is, but only to somebody who knows how to work on skis. Any opinions/help is appreciated.

    You should first open the engine and have a better idea on the damage.
    I dont think a 07 is worth to repair but it depends on damage.
    I added some parts recently that i need for a 08 and it was over $3800 incl cyl head and cyl block but without crank and crankcase.
    Thats without labour...
    I guess market prices for used 07's are in the $6000-$7000 range.

    Again, first thing u have to do is to get a better idea of the damage.

    Bad thing kawi does not sell complete engines.

    Bro, take it to the stelership, and see what they say. Dont open the engine yourself. Let them do it all. how often did you change the oil on your ski?
