    1999 1100 ZXI , Blue motor , Compresion Test

    Hey there , was wondering what the compression should be for on the Kawasaki 1100 ZXI Engine .
    And also how difficult is a top end job on this engine should my compression be to low , must the engine be taken out of ski to put new pistons/rings in ? Any tips

    Thanks All,,,

    Compression numbers are sort of nebulous. It's more important that they be fairly close between cylinders than the actual number. Good compression is probably 110 - 130, but it depends on whether the engine is hot/cold, elevation, how accurate your gauge is, etc.

    I think it would be quite difficult to do it in the 'Ski.
