Man I feel bad for you. Thats a serious part to fail. Have you ran synthetic oil as required? Have you ever got water in the crankcase? You may try Country Cat for a price less than your dealer. I have never heard of rebuilt parts for these things unless someone does the rebuilding themselves. Good Luck.

I have seen a few issues where dirt got through the filter because of someone not oiling it and this happened. The other problems were caused by running the bike out of oil then it takes out everything. Sorry to hear of your misfortune.

If anything was ingested through the air filter, the top end would show unusual wear/damage.
It sounds like all that happened was bottom end troubles? Very strange. Normally this would be associated with lack of oil, what are you using for oil?
It sucks man, wish I could be more help. The worst thing is just repairing and NOT knowing why it went down in the first place.

700 crankshaft

Well finally got the engine apart and the big end was the only part siezed up.Don't really see anything that looks to be the culprit i have a good friend who works for an arctic cat dealer ship as a mechanic and he is going to help me look for the demon.But as luck would have it he also just took a complete motor out of a 700 xtx that had be emersed in a creek over night the insurance bought them a brand new motor because of the silt issues in the water and he gave it to me,so tonight I tore it apart and there was nothing wrong with it so my delema is over as far as the money issue for parts.any way thanks for all your input on the matter.Wayne

Mine did the same @210 hrs replaced the oil pump for good measure and installed a gauge. Running cat synthetic oil the oil pressure starts out around 60 psi but drops below twenty when warmed up good. has an oil cooler but I am thinking it should be moved in front of the rad. Any other ideas?

Yes I will be putting on another air flter .Up here they have been running a tube up to the front of the machine inside of the storage area on the left side and have been having good luck with it.Seems that the computer will learn the intake distance and compensate for it wth no problems so far.

I was cleaning my air filter approx every 50 miles (!!!) and then I snorkled it and now I do it approx every 250-500 miles, depending on conditions, and even then it's usually pretty darn clean! Ya gotta wonder which engineer had his head up his a** when he designed that setup! LOL
