compression test

Recommended Posts

Does Honda give a standard compression pressure? I bought my bike used and didn't get the owners manual. With the auto decompressor, I know it would be lower but there should be a baseline to go off.

I think it says 65psi. I remember checking mine just after replacing the rings and doing a valvejob and it was 85 psi but everything was all oiled up and sealing very well! 😢

A compression test on this engine is worthless,with the auto decompressor the compression will always show about the same whether you have leaking valves or not.A leak down test is really the only diagnostic tool that works on these kind of engines.

I have seen engines that would not even start that "showed"the same compression as a new never run engine because of the auto decomp,cheers
