I'v got a 2003 Z 570 and it's an amazing sled, corners amazing, best class performance, amazing comfort, all the magazines rave about it. I had 2500 trouble free miles on it when all of a sudden I was riding home the other day when everything just turned off and I was coasting in the pitch black! I got towed home and the next day I was looking to see wtf happended, I thought some water had gotten in the gas and it had frozen because it ws sitting outside at a friends house for a while, but after 4 hours I got it to start up and it was running on 1 Cylinder.
I took the piston out
and what happened was the clip came out and the ring had turned and caught and got ripped out and cut big grooves out of the cylinder and imbedded pieces into the top of the piston! Anyone know why this happed?!
It rane perfect before that. Thanks A lot.
