Compression test

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on checking compression this winter but how would I do it with the auto decompressor? Is there a certain reading with the decomp still on or do I have to deactivate it. How would I do this and what am I looking for a psi reading? Thanks

Although the shop manual says 73 psi @600 rpm (forceful kicking, throttle fully open) it's most likely a misprint, since others on TT have gotten 170-190 psi. when kicking it over. Apparently 600 rpm is enough to release the decompressor.
