engine seized

UPDATE: I pulled the motor and took it to a polaris dealer. The mechanic found that the outside crank bearings failed (not an uncommon problem) 3 bearings @$30 each, gasket kit $50, $250 labor = $400
The mechanic said the piston rings where in good shape and not needed to be replace.

engine seized

The engine hot light did not come on. I checked the water pump/belt, both are ok. Checked the compression- 110 psi in each cylinder. I talked to a mechenic at a Polaris dealer and he seems to think I have a bad crank
bearing. Has anyone had to replace bearings? Will the crank have to be turned down?

engine seized

I have a 1990 Polaris 500, after riding for an hour the other day the engine stalled and was seized up. After cooling off for about 10 minutes I could pull start the engine and start it back up, everything seemed ok so I started to head back home. I drove it slowly for about 10 minutes and it seized...
