I found the culprit! Boys, check your carb slides.

This is injestion #2 for my bike. About 300 miles into my ownership of this bike, that exact same thing happened. I replaced the that plate from Sudco. I did not dream that could happen again so fast, but it has.
I strongly recommend good shoes and checking your carb slide plates.
A little happier about the situation,

I'd like to see what your talking about...

As for the combustion chamber, it still look real good. No scoring on the cylinder walls and the piston nor head look as though any damage occured.

Notice the chunk missing on the left, and if you look very closely, you can see a crack that runs up the right side almost to the top. That side was very close to breaking off as well.

Will slap another one in and see how long it lasts....

It looks like I need to add material to the throttle stop. Can this be done, or, do I need to buy another and re-cut it down?
Hey Mike! Seems like I was just dealing with this, huh! No, no 470 is planned, but that would be nice! Alaskan Amber, right?
