Hi i own a firecat but a couple of my buddies have zr 500s both 02s on their trip to Canada they both melted down a cylender they were saying something about the rings snagging th ports or something along the lines of that. IT happend in the same side and everything. Is there a recal or an update for the cylenders for the zr 500 carbs? Why would this happen and why on the same trip? Why on the same side? i cant think of anything.

Sounds like bad luck and unfortunate coincidence. I don't know about the 500's, but I seem to remember people talking about an update on 600 pistons for ring locator pins falling out.

if your ring turned and snagged a cylinder this would be a mechanical piston failure,unlikely in to machines at the same time, i would be more inclined to believe both machines were not jetted properly for the cold canada weather and burned down,resulting in stuck rings and skuffed pistons and or cylinders.
just my opinion.
