    I do not see a problem, the cylinder walls look good and the pistonwash looks like it is on the rich side. The piston skirts collapse a little over time and that is why you see the movement you do. The important question is what was your compression?

    Genraly there is a difference between the #3 and the other two but this seems like it is too much, also all three sound low for a 1300.

    How about a little more history on this ski, what problems were you seeing before you pulled the head?

    if it had water intrusion you may have rod or crank issues. as far as running rough I am not up on the fuel injection stuff. I would definitely consider pulling the cylinders and doing an inspection of the crank and check piston clearances. then is all passes spec do a re-ring minimum.

    Whats the plugs look like? Its normal to have play in the bore, .006" +/- . Explain how you are doing your compression test and what guage your using. What mods are done? How many hours on the top end?

    Open the throttle all the way. Make sure your battery is fully charged. Take another compression test and get back.
