Default 11-12' 800 Pro Reliability

I hate to do this, but I am curius how bad these engine issues are on a percentage basis. This poll is only concerning major engine failure (pistons, cylinder, crank, etc.) and not electrical/injector/sensor issues. I know some failures I have heard start with something such as a piston or cylinder skirt, and then get in the crank, but only concerned with the root problem.
