ill be curious to see the compression numbers when the rings are seated. i bet they go up. im guessing in the 140 range. (which is fine)

Not sure if the raise in the compression numbers will be +20psi lets see   :armscrossed:

ive done a few where they have gone 15-20 from a never motor to one thats been ridden a  few times. i assume you checked compression with the throttle wide open? (or no carbs on)?

will be interesting to see the raise in compression numbers after break-in.
and yes the test done was without carbs and exhaust

easy!!! happy wife happy life  :laugh:

I try to keep it clean and cleanup after working on the bike. Most parts are new or cleaned so doesn't get dirty
