Update

Upon further strip down they found a cam bearing seized (I need more info on specifics).

Lots of new parts coming: new cylinder, piston, rings, valve gear, pulleys, bearings and more I've forgotten.

Bottom end is OK.

No metal bits anywhere as contact of Piston and Valves was minor, barely made contact. I have not seen it, but will soon. I've asked for ALL old parts.

Mechanics are quite confident all will be well, they are replacing anything even remotely in question. Hoping for the best.

More updates to follow.

Interesting, I am pretty sure this is the exact same failure a friend of mine had happen to his Multistrada. All covered by warranty, it was a lot of labor so good thing it was covered.

Best of luck, that sounds like a really odd failure. Good on you for asking to keep the old parts. They might not be able to however due to warranty reasons.

I'm shocked they were willing to cover it, but maybe it's a case of them covering their own screw up..
