I know it's out of warranty, but have your dealer call Chopper. Generac had a problem with rods. It's Usually the #2 cylinder. The rod will be broken at the top towards the piston, about 3/4 of the way up. There were porous rods in their engines. We had at least 10 of these, all on choppers that were built in 04/05. They may be able to do a courtesy adjustment. Call chopper direct if you have to. If the rod is broken like I describe, I would bet the farm on it being a bad rod from the factory. All the engines I found broken rods in had a few more hours than yours. Was it full of oil when it happened?? Good luck, JOHN
