    Looking for a how to on compression test

    I have a brand new compression test kit and was going to try it out on one of the seadoos.

    Is there a good 'how to' thread with pictures?

    Just get the engine warm, pull the plugs, screw the comp tester into hole and crank away at WOT. Really not much to it at all. I sure hope your 2012 still has good compression

    haha yeah me to. Secretly that's the one I wanted to test.

    I'm sure its fine, I just want to play with my new toy. That's probably not the best reason to tinker with something that's working fine but I'm not going to hurt anything doing a compression test.

    So all 3 spark plugs out the whole time while I'm cranking?

    I think that's debatable. Removing 1 plug at a time is said to increase the comp number by about 10psi.

    Ok I'll probably give it a go tonight. Want to double check the dealer actually changed the plugs at the 10hr service anyway before I ride tomorrow
