Looking at a 03 MSX140
I have been trying to do some research on this machine and what could have caused the center cylinder to have low compression. After doing some research I noticed some posts here about the center cylinder going. I have an 03 genesis i, but know these are different animals. I have yet to find how many hours on it. The guy just said its in great condition other than that. It comes with trailer, cover and lift. I offered $1200 prior to looking it over. I will get the vin so my dealer a run a check. I though I read the updates sticker would be on the air box. Is there anything else I should look for with this ski? Thanks for any other insight. RS

Until you know otherwise is is safest to assume the engine needs a complete rebuild and the EMM needs repair.. Purchase accordingly.
The engine may just need a piston and cylinder replate, or it may have crankshaft issues which means rebuilt time.
The fuel pressure regulator will need reinforcement, but that is low cost to do yourself.
The EMM may or may not be 100% good at the moment but many of them at some point need the C89 capacitor replaced and sometimes the power board needs parts replaced.
