One of my buddie's dad has a 2001 zr 500sp and what happened was his powervalve malfunctioned and tore up his jug, piston, head, and sleeve. Was there a recall for the powervalve for that year? Has anyone else had this problem? It happened to two of the same people and it was on the pto side. Response would be appreciated.

Thanks, Bobby

from the looks of what i have and firecat59 have seen it looks like the power valve went throughand when the piston was going up and down it (power valve) went up in there and caused alot of hell. beating the crap out of the piston jug, the whole 9 yards. the guy told us that he went to where he bought the sled and they gave him all the parts for free, he thought that was odd. so we think there was a problem or a recall.
