Killed it!!!

Thought the exhaust was clogged so i took it off and ran it for a while. It ran amazing until a rock or somethin flew in my engine end jacked up the piston and cylinder

Ouch! Sorry to hear of the death.
FWIW, riding without an exhaust installed on any 2 stroke, especially for a decent ride, will kill the engine regardless. It will run too lean and overheat the piston leading to a seized engine.

Ouch! If that isn't paying the price...

Got any pictures of the damage? Hopefully you'll only have to order a new piston and jug.

After poor performance, today I opened up my carb to check for dirt. Well a while ago I tried soldering the leak on my fuel tank, and well, the nasty solder flux paste must of gotten into the fuel. When I opened the carb, it was filled with goopy black gunk! I'm surprised it ran at all!

So I scrubbed all the little parts with hot water and detergent, got a new fuel filter, put it all back together, and now she's purrin' like a kitten again! VROOM VROOOOM!!!

Give it a proper burial.

If you cut off the cylinder skirts they do make for a pretty cool looking pencil cup.
