    Question Looking for help in Jacksonville/OP Florida

    Need someone locally that can take a look at my ski for me and tell me whats up. Someone to just say you need to do this or that or that this isnt right or that needs changed, etc. Pass the word, there has to be someone on this board who can help!! Thanks.

    YUP how motors work
    please call your motor guy before you tell me i am wrong..i have before and will be again
    reeds help to move gas infuzed air from the bottom of the cases to the top -- nothing to do with compression
    compression only happens after all ports are closed
    anybody who builds motor for a living want to confirm--
    dont mind being wrong ,,i just dont want to help poeple with BAD info

    Your correct....reeds will not result in 0 compression.

    GKE....That is the closest person I would recommend unless you want to drive over to see Eric in Crystal river which is likely even further. You are going to need serious help now due to the dead cylinder and if you are unwilling to drive....you may want to take it to your dealership.

    bunch of guys are closer in to him, all up and down that coast.. im almost directly across the state from you, but let me know.. drop a note in the south east riders section looking for a local experianced rider to eyeball your ski.. see what comes back.. other wise we are here post pics and we can walk you thru just about anything and direct you on where to get it done ..

    UPDATE: sent a message off to DUKE in titusville.. asking him to chime in here and possibly recommend a member that might help closeby..
