    Question 951 Compression ???

    I know I have read that the compression on a 951 is supposed to pump 135psi, and I know that the cylinders are supposed to be equal or very close to equal.

    But how much difference is too much?

    Talking to a person about an 00' XPL they have for sale and last compression reading he had done from a shop was 133 and 128. That was 2 years ago and he said the ski stills runs perfect. He is oblivious to what the numbers mean or supposed to mean. He just read it off shop ticket to me..

    Should I stay away from this one? Or should I go look, run a compression test myself, ride the piss out of it, and make an offer if it all looks/runs good?

    Thanks, David

    If they within 3% of each other, they are fine.

    Why don't you wait for your answer with your post on PWC? Why do you post this question in multiple forums?

    I just wanted to see if there were any different opinions..

    I know there are some people that stay on here regular that do not visit pwc and vice versa. I didn't realized I couldn't post the same topic on two diff forums...
