    2017 Kawasaki ultra 310 connecting rod failure

    So my buddies 2017 ultra 310lx just blew his engine and the dealer found out it was his connecting rod that had failed. He had about 40 hours on the ski. When we went to the dealer and we asked it if was a common issue. The guy at the mechanic shop had 2 other 2017 ultra 310 models and both had around 30 hours on them. He said the other two skies had failed connecting rods. All were under warrenty I believe. Is anyone else having the same issues? My 2017 310x has about 24 hours on it and I havnt had this issue yet.

    did his ski anytime fill up with water or roll in those first 30-40 hours. if you hydrolock a motor (either fuel or water) you can destroy a rod pretty good.
