    ultra 250x low compression?

    i have a ultra 250x 08 newly rebuilt with new 2010 head when i had it summerized the tech said that the motor was perfect he got 105 psi across all cylinders when he did the compression test (which i thought was low but went with it) i took it out for the first time and i couldnt get it above 57mph and 7200rpms. so that got me researching and i found out that my compression should be btw 172-260 so im curious what yall think would cause all cylinders to have low compression on a new motor. it runs smooth but just doesnt have the power it use to. side note...it was rebuild because it had a head gasket leak so i paid to have the whole motor rebuilt because of all the salt water that ran through it for so long. thanks for the replies

    The mechanic said his book shows it should be [email protected] r/min. Does this sound correct?

    Number 1 go find a new mechanic, your current one is a FWit.

    Compression between cylinders shouldn't vary by more than 10% (new age mechanics go as high as 15%) so you can't go wrong with 12.5 %

    i think 15f is about 160 ( apart from low compression its the % between cylinders that matters the most)
