1996 Ski Doo Touring SLE

HI all I have a Ski Doo touring SLE with a 500cc fan cooled, carb motor in it and was out riding and the motor seized up on me....

Where do I go from here, haven't looked at anything yet but need a place to start and how to get this thing running again?

Thanks

You need to take the top end apart and find out what you will need to start with.
The damage can also point to the cause as well.

It's probably one of the pistons that seized in the bore. Remove the cylinder cover and that will point to the way you need to go.

Took the heads off the cylinders today. The Clutch side piston has a hole through it and has parts of it stuck against the head. Looks like im going to need a new piston and rings, and new cylinder. Any good places to find these parts? Also, What may have caused this?

Thanks

It ran lean.
There are three reasons for that.
1. cracked carb mount flange
2. bad crank seal
3. plugged jet in carb.

OR too hot of a plug. BR9ES is the plug for that sled. Check the things RJ said above.
