Piston stuck ring blew out

Hey I have a 2001 xlt1200 and the motor seized so took a look and found cylinder #2 the problem. Piston chipped due to what looks like the ring blew out. Need to get that jug off to replace piston. But broken ring is jammed between piston and cylinder wall. Any idea the best way to get the head off in the situation?

You can drag and drop a pic into that window below the reply box. (says Drag Files Here To Attach!)I think it won't take large pics, not sure of the size. You can also insert a link to a pick that is online with the little picture icon above when you reply. Some sites won't let you post pics unless you do a few post first, I don't know if this one does that. It's to slow spamming on the site.

You are just going to have to force that piston out, no magic way I can think of to do it.

What do you mean take the head off? It's not off? How did you see the bad ring and piston? I assumed it was a typo about the head.

Thanks man for the reply. Typo. You are right. Meant to say jug. Trying to figure a way to get that loose without tearing up the cylinder walls. I can see what looks like part of the broken ring near the busted part of the piston wedged between piston and cylinder wall. Thought about drilling into piston.

Well, pistons are pretty soft, that might work. Just be real careful cause drill bits aren't so soft, right!? Don't want to hit the cyl on accident. How about a dremel?
Can you pull the jug and piston with rod off together? Make it easier to work on.

Good luck, be careful, let us know how it goes.

Thanks man. Since it is cylinder #2 and trying to do this in the ski, I’m digging your dremel idea. Between drill and dremel might have a shot. Later!
