i was riding on the weekend and the motor siezed, took it in and the dealer said mag seal let go. took out both cylinders and pistons. bottom end berings as well. guessing these motors arn't that good. seems lots for a 2006 with 1700 miles on it. dealer is getting a complete new motor, cheaper than all the parts. good on my part. not a patched up motor.

It may seem like the motor is a lemon, but there is a higher rate of crank failure on the old 800 liberty than on the 900. Big motors make big power and shake. There is really no way around the harmonics.

no warning just running down a lake at night and the lights went out. couldnt turn motor over. only other symptom may be the mag side plug would foul when it was on cold start up. asked dealer and they said let it warm up more. still never helped, now we will see if the new motor will do this.
motor was running at 142 degree when she siezed,
