    Need help with a 1995 Kawasaki 900 zxi

    A buddy and I were given a 1995 Kawasaki 900 zxi. It hadn't been run in at least a year if not longer. We put new spark plugs, a brand new battery in it, and changed to oil and gas. We put it in the water and got it running but it top out at about 10 mph and it sounds like there is a knock in the engine. What should we check or do to get it running good? If it would help we can take a video of it and post it.

    Start with a compression test. Make sure the oil lines are in good shape, as they get brittle with age and crack. The carbs most likely need to be overhauled, too.

    What should the compression be?
