WR SM takin heat

He told me this: "Keep in mind our last yamaha dirt bike threw a rod and blew up his motor... dumping oil on the track. My belief is those motors are not meant for running wide open... very few trails you can just leave it pinned."
From what I've read here, a buch of guys have run the WR's at the track, and I run mine on the street all the time. They seem to be ideal for switching between the two (track and street). I got in to the WR because it seems to be the "everything" bike.
Is he upset that a former track day attendee fouled up a track day or should I be legitimately concerned?
I'm looking for some input before I put any more money into the bike for the SM switchover.

I use my bike in Supermoto races during the summer. Thing what you need understand is that Supermoto and Iceroadracing both are complitely different to the engine wear than motocross or enduro. Taking this you should change piston and con-rod in every 100hrs then most likely you'll be safe. How often Husaberg, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki or any other manufacturers recommend this operations I don't know. But can't be any more than 100hrs.
