Thread: compression problem
08-12-2009, 08:20 PM #1
Bought a 2005 gp1300r and got taken. It ran pretty good in open water but is very slow out of the hole. Top end was 64 (speedo). Took it out 4 or 5 times and had fun until i got on my friends and wow is mine dogging it.
Checked compression tonight:
Where do I start and what do I look for first (be gentle...lol)
Thanks for your help everyone.

Im not much of a mechanic (but fairly handy) but I have all winter to learn. Is this something i can do myself and what is it going to cost me.
Thanks for your quick reply

If compression is down,you need to pull the head and inspect that hole. Check to see if the #3 oil line is still in tact. Compression test should be taken with the throttle wide open.

Im doing premix which was set up before I got it.

Pre-mix is good, but other things can cause a motor to fail. If #3 is that low take the head off and check the cylinder and head. Take pictures and post them up so you can be pointed in the right direction. CHeck the how to section and download yourself a service manual for that ski also.
