Has anyone figured out why the 2019 and up are putting rods through the block similar to the early models? The 2019 came with stronger rods and was supposed to eliminate the issue.

There are a lot of 19's + out there.
Have not seen this issue you speak of.
I suppose I could break a rod or destroy my 19 engine if I tried real hard.
3100 miles and no connecting rods have left the block.

I'm drawing a blank here too. I've been on the sight for a couple yrs now since buying my 2019 and have seen one member that had this happen right after he had a turbo installed so my guess would be the turbo setup was incorrect and Yamaha covered it under warranty. Other than that one case, I have not heard of it.

The up side of forced induction is the power but everything comes at a cost. If your not worried about shorter engine life or possible catastrophic failures then the Turbo is the answer. I can see if you are doing your riding out west in higher elevations boosting will overcome the loss of power due to the high elevations above sea level. Add riding out in the sand where you need the power is another reason to go with a turbo. I live in the Midwest so far all of my riding has been on narrow trails where a turbo would be constantly going on and off boost. I have a 2020 XTR with about 50 hrs. no issues. In the early spring and late fall and winter I'm able to ride on some large farm fields and even without having a turbo I'm able to cover a lot of ground in a hurry. The only time that I have really stressed mine is when riding in wet heavy snow that was over 16 inches deep. Then even without the power of a turbo it was able to get going where drifting and sliding became an issue.

Yamaha wont cover it because they didn't install your turbo kit, if they did it would be covered.

no they said they wouldn’t cover it because the turbo was on it had nothing to do with who installed it and it wasn’t a bottom end failure the cam chain let lose

Hold my beer folks. I had a window in my block and Yamaha covered it with the YES warranty. I have a GYTR turbo kit that I installed, the dealer is where the warranty battle begins and ends. My dealer went to bat for me and got me a new engine.

I was under the same impression as you. Crazy, with a stock motor. I was thinking about going turbo but I feel my stock 2019 did ok at Glamis. I am running Stu tributes in the front and ds360 (I think) in the rear. Both 29’s
