Well the plating wore thru is the cuprite to high oil consumption. Ring gaps were not aligned. Dealer said dirt digestion caused it. Not many miles on it. Live in sand country. Check the filters and air leaks on your filtration.

Finally winter snow is low enough to drive the Prowler and break in the rebuild after about 40km it is starting to run real good but still on feul with oil. Extensive rebuild of engine top end, clutching, a-frames, wheel bearings, tires, shocks and more has cost $6200 up here in Canada (King Shocks). Should be good for an other 6000km or more, beats buying a new one. Just one more thing to consider replacing - valve springs, the top end under lug on engine rattles the valves a bit, does no happen on roads or packed trail just when in snow or heavy mud.

Installed new head
Sending cylinder out for re chroming $250. Can not find a new one for 2007... installing a better filter inside upper cab. Might be noisy but I wear muffs, Hope I don't have to re jet :)

Wow that is dirt wear for sure. I closed in the gap between rear inner fender and cap after noticing lots of dust and mud getting into the area around first air filter (oiled), made a huge difference so air is coming from inside of cab behind seat toward engine instead of wheel well. Used a silencer mat material that has shiny side and adhesive on the other lined the motor cover and blocked wheel well gap, seems to be quieter and much cleaner.
