Did it look like this piston? There are several reasons for a failure

advanced timing or faulty CDI, too hot of spark plug, too high of
compression ratio for the octane used. Basically you are creating too
much heat from somewhere??

I own a 1993 Ski-Doo Formula Plus EFI, in which I blew a hole in the piston
last weekend.  As a result, I destroyed the piston, pins, bearings and crank.
 I'm now looking for those parts, or a good used 580cc motor in the Toronto
or Muskoka area (I'm in Toronto the sled is in Muskoka).  Would anyone have
such a thing or know of where I might look?

Also, would anyone have any theories as to why this happened?  The Ski-Doo
dealer who currently has the machine can't seem to figure it out yet.  I was
running premium unleaded gas with gas line antifreeze, Amsoil synthetic oil,
doing 130 kph in -16C (3F).


Thanks for your time.
