2008 700 rmk
vehicle type: snowmobile
condition: salvage
odometer: 4100
If you have seen this post before, I have an update. I tore down the motor to my 08 700 rmk. It lost compression at the end of a ride in March this year. The magneto side cylinder lost the small pin that clocks the ring in the piston ring groove. The ring rotated until its groove moved inline with the exhaust port. The ring expanded, contacted the exhaust port edge, and was pounded into pieces.

It appears all the damage is to the piston and jug/cylinder. The rotating assembly is fine. The mag jug is not usable, the transfer ports are cracked (image may not show it very well).

A used (but good and can be honed) jug from ebay is $250. A piston/ring/gasket kit is $212. I am parting out (and junking) this sled no matter what. It is not worth it to me rebuild this engine for this cost and try and sell it. BUT, if you need a good running 700 for an IQ/dragon, no reason this one cannot be fixed reliably. The whole sled is available. The work removing the engine is done, I don't mind honing the cylinders and getting it back together if you want to pay for the parts.
