Wow! You've had some bad luck lately. Glenn will take care of it though.

Holy shrapnel, Batman.
That piston wasn't in a happy place. Who builds the pistons for AMR? Either that, or the stroker crank is pulling the piston too low in the bore.

Makes me wonder if it's a issue with the bore and plating on the cylinder.

If I remember right that was a fst 900 and Glenn had new pistons made and maybe head work and cams

Damn... Mine is running strong still. Just afraid to hit the button. Had the bottle all hooked up and couldn't do it. So much power all ready I'm afraid something like that might happen.

Won't know exactly what happened until I get it back here, and even then, it is like throwing a hand grenade in a room, and trying to figure out what broke first.....

Either way, it is warrantied. just wish Omar wasn't sitting out, without an engine right now.

Oh, and FWIW, there is plenty of clearance between the pin boss and the crank counterbalances. All that was checked during the initial assembly, even though it was reassembled out there with the new cylinders.

Sorry for the bad luck. Good to see Glenn standing behind his product. It is nice to see that even with us pushing the limits of these machines, someone standing behind parts. I know of other people that only wish their builder would do the same.

Wow that quads sounds amazing on paper to bad its going to keep blowing up. To big of stroke go to a 900 and nos it.


I am only kidding, Omar is my younger brother, I like messing with him. He gets mad easy. Hope your quad is up and running soon lil bro, but your big bro will still smoke you.
