Another 570 Seizure

Another 570 Seizure

Yep.

While out on a cruise this weekend with a friend and his new Panthter 570
ESR his sled simply quit on a long river stretch.  We were not cruising too
fast, just a nice touring speed.  We pulled over and yanked the plugs.  PTO
side was fine.  Mag plug was near white-ish with a powdery aluminum type
substance on the electrode.  We poured some oil in the cylinder and broke
the piston free and limped back into town.  Dealer is out of town at the
Polaris dealer show (yes...both Poo and AC), but it should be covered under
warranty.

What is up with the 5470's?  I seem to recall a few other posts indicating a
problem with seizures?  Is there a recall or a service bulletin?

That white, powdery stuff was the top of the piston being burnt off from an
overly lean condition.
