Compression test 2006 TE610

I have a friend with a 2006 610.  Started easily prior to washing with a powerwasher.  Now nothing.  Another friend removed the plug because there was water in the well.  He doesn't knoiw if water went into the cylinder or not.  One way or the other - no starty.

 

I'd like to start with simple troubleshooting - gas, spark, compression.

 

A quick look showed a weak (yellow) spark at the plug.  Replacement of the plug yielded the same result.  I was hoping for blue but at least there's a spark.  Where do I test the coil output and what should I measure?

 

We drained the gas out of the tank and float bowl so I don't think that's an issue.

 

Like to do a compression test.  I know the readings are funky due to the auto compression release.  Still there must be a "must see at least xxxx psi with throttle wide open" number.  He doesn't have a manual and I've been unable to find a number for him.  Anybody have that number handy?

 

My worst fear is that water went into the cylinder when they removed the plug and subsequent cranking bent a valve stem.

 

Lil help?

hi ,

 more likely water in the electrics weakening the spark,

 

pull connectors for the handlebar switches,

 dry and spray connections,

 then test spark again,

 

if no go ask uptite george,

Thanks - we can try drying the connectors.

 

Still looking for acceptable compression results with ACR.
