Low compression

Is it possible for the compression to be low if the valves are bad? I know it would be low if it needed a piston & rings, but could bad valves or the bike needing a valve adjustment cause low compression also?

Yes, specially if the valves are not sealing. Very common if the valves are bad, low compression is directly related.

Yea you are supposed to do leakdown tests for these
