no compression!!!!!!

hey guys! so i did a compression test on my 04 kx250f because it will not start!well when i did the test my compression was at a whopping 15psi! the bike has new piston and rings... so what are my other options? is the crank shot or the valves not seating all the way maybe? any suggestions please let me know thanks a ton!

Did you disengage the auto decomp when testing?

Nope I didn't. How do I? But still I shouldnt have 15psi should I? Even if the auto decomp is engaged I should prob have around 40-50Psi if the manual calls for 70-104

i used the extension from my compression gauge to hook up to my compressor for a leak down test...

i think when I had a leaking valve, I got around 40 psi of compression. Next chance I get to pull the plug out, I will hook up the gauge and see what I am getting with a fresh piston/rings/head.

Nope I didn't. How do I?

You wire the weight in the outward (engine running) position.

      As close to new as I'd imagine you'd get! I bought the bike brand new, I'm older and have taken extremely good care of this bike. Very little use and is COMPLETELY stock - everything is original. 
      Comes with the title, original book and map couplers for the fuel injection.
      $4700 - cash

      Time for a top end on my bike, just wondering if there are any alternative Valve springs i can use. I have PC cams and $400 for just the springs and retainers is alil costly at the moment.
      This has been fun in other sections of TT, so I'll start the thread here and see if we can keep it going.
      Let us know what kind of mods, fixes, changes, etc.., you performed today, or just general fun you had with, your KX250F.
      I'll start with.. I installed a correct for my weight Race Tech shock spring, along with a Pivot Works shock spring thrust bearing. Also cleaned out all the nasty yellow plastic/wax crap that passes for grease in the lower shock bearing, and re-lubed it with Bel Ray waterproof.
