compression on overheated TE450?

Recommended Posts

A freind melted his plastic T and overheated his motor.Would checking compression reveal any damage to the rings?If so what is the range for a 450?

I do not know what the expected range of cranking compression is. That info would be helpful to you. However, I feel that a leakdown test will best illustrate the current condition of your engine.

This info can be found on the Web

I melted the T on my TE450,

Without a comp reading previous to the repair, your really not getting accurate info.

Lokk at the filters for contamination and the oil. Unless it got REALLY REALLY Hot, as in smells real bad, head gsk leaking, probably externally, these things are tough. Most W/Cooled bikes will be pretty tolerent to heat, if you had the sense to take your time getting home! :cry:
