    96 Xp Compression

    A friend of mine is going to look at and possibly buy a 96 XP. I told him how to check compression, but I don't know what the compression is supposed to be on a 96 XP. I used the search function and could not find it.

    it should be in the area of 155 psig
    [150-165]
    anything below 130psig and there is is probably some high hours or ring wear

    Don't forget elevation will change that compression. For a 800 up here to get 155 it would need a milled head.

    My stock 96XP has 138 in each hole.

    Also, not all comp gauges are the same. I would look more for the 2 cylinders having an even number +/- 5%
