I doubt that the Trail Boss has a Nikasil plated cylinder, so I would think it could be bored. I would at least hone it if there is no real damage and the bore isn't worn past the size of the piston. If it were me, I would probably just go up to the next piston size and put a fresh bore on the cylinder, just my 2 cents. You will want to get into the bottom end and make sure there aren't any pieces of that piston floating around in the engine. While you are in there check the crank and any bearings for wear. You will also want to look into possible causes for the breakdown. Check the plug and valves, the condition of these things can be a good indicator of any problems that may have occured.

The intake and exhuast valves, note the color of the valves and any deposits that may have accumulated on them. Check to see if they are seating properly.

I should have known that. Especially after you asked "what valves?" I forget that the earlier Polaris quads were 2-strokes. In that case, the top of the cylinder and the combustion dome will give the same indication. It is likely that the cylinder was just a little worn and the piston skirt caught the edge of one of the ports and broke. I would still split the cases and inspect the crank and bearings in the bottom end.

      Charging issue?
      I have a 2017 Polaris Sportsman 570 EFI. Yesterday, I start the machine and it says low power (10.6-10.8). This machine is on its second battery. This is a new AGM battery with 50cca more than stock.
      Should I look at the regulator or stator?
      Thanks!!!

      Got a 04 Sportsman 500 that wasnt running- owner said it needed a stater and a new battery.  It ran rough (been sitting out in the weather for a while).  A friend and I started by adding a new battery and it would start barely with the choke and his hand over the air-filter.  I decided to install the new battery in the holder on the side.  we had it on the rack because the old on was still in the bike.  I tried to be nifty by turning the battery to put the terminals in an easier spot to get to, but forgot to reverse the cables too.  In a sentence, I reversed the positive and negative on the battery like a dummy.  When we discovered my mistake and corrected it, we turned on the bike, but the display did not light up and the key did not turn on the starter.  jumping the solenoid worked the starter, so we thought the solenoid just burned up when I reversed the pos and neg...  new solenoid and no difference.  what have I burned up?  Also, the shifter does not seem to do anything in the trans.  it slides back and forth like its stripped in the trans.  any help would be appreciated!!
      I think the biggest issue right now is the electrical.

      i know this isnt an atv but same type of thing.  I have a riding mower im fixing and selling for my aunt and it has a dead battery.  i jumped it off my atv and when i turn the key nothing at all happens.  i tried jumping the relay still nothing.  this is with the seat down.  you wouldnt think this mower would have issues as its a top-of-the-line brand and almost brand new (aunt found it for a good price, still got tits on tires, just sat for a couple months in a mechanic shop

      are on the cylinder. The vin code is 4XAAG25C312459874
