    95 SLT750 Compression problem

    I have had this ski since 96 and run it hard every year (but maintain it fairly well), took it out this weekend cause it was running a little rough at idle, did a comrpession test and got 125 on 1, 110 on 2 and 125 on 3. Check the cylinder wash and 2 is black but dry and no clean spots near the ports. I started reading this forum and decided I will clean carbs and change to 3-port pump, but should I just rering the piston? BTW when I added a little oil to the # 2 or CEN cylinder compression went way up over 180 so I am guessing rings will do it.

    I think you may have put a lil too much oil in there.

    Your numbers are a little over the 5% rule, but I would probably let it ride. I'd just keep an eye on it.

    Clean the carbs, change the fuel pump, replace the hoses and call it good.

    Run it untill compression is way low and repair over winter.
