That sucks. Your really better off buying a used one. Then you can sell off all the good parts from you blown up one.
The only problem is your still going to be stuck with the same insides as the one you just blew up and that's the reason it blew up.

Thanks to all the hard work from Todd at www.151fab.com for building my rhino!

Are the insides of the 660 and the 700 almost the same? I have a 700 with 1200 miles on it and it seems to be running great.

What is the cost of replacing the pin with the upgraded one you are talking about ?

The pin is about 90 bucks. It is coated so that the surface will not gall up. I'm sure Chris can better explain. I also highly reccomend a CP piston.
I have the coated pin in mine. I give a report of my findings next tear down

Its your piston wristpin. Its a do it yourself if you can change out your top end.

The DLC pin (diamond like coating) is $88.50. The pin BiggJim has is for a CP piston. The stock pin is much longer than the pin used for CP pistons.
I have not checked to see if they make one for the stock piston. If they don't, you can have the stock Yamaha pin coated. I don't know the cost for that.
I don't know what everyone else charges to do a Rhino top-end but through Benchmark it runs on average of $450 labor. A CP piston is $225 regardless of bore or compression. Plus a few bucks for coolant and gaskets.

Hmm, so for about 300 or so if you did it yourself. I have never changed out a piston would this require much more work and difficulty ?

If you have many hours on your rhino I would definatly change the piston....Mine went at 40 hours
