YZF750 compression results. help needed.

Postby twack » Mon Sep 17, 2012 8:41 pm

My YZF750 runs like CRAP so i did a compression test and i got back 90 30 30 90. so time to dive in. but what usually causes that kinda compression in these bike? Rings? headgasket? valves? Any help would be awesome.

Most likely the top gasket in this case since it is the 2 middle cylinders that are VERY low.
Whilst looking at that I would take the opportunity to set the valve shims to the correct specs. and check the two center bores for damage (just a pre-caution )
