    well i checked the spark on all the cyl... its strong at all cyl and all the coils are ok.

    the motor does run but only on cyl 2+3... 1+4 are not running. affter compression test

    in order from cyl 1 2 3 4
    60 90 95 62

    the outside two cyl are notorious for moisture after long terms of not running... tonight i will conduct a wet compression test with thick oil to determin if the rings are seized up or if the valves have issues....
    im told stock compression for this bike is 200++psi?!>!?!?!? T/F?

    also before the ring replacement i will be putting some oil in the top of the motor to see if i cant get he rings to unsieze if that is the problem... and i might be able to fix the problem by doing that... i hope so.

    You already did a dry check now do a oil test to check the valves.
    Put a few drops of oil in one cylinder and check the compression, write it down. Then do the next cylinder and so-on, If there is no change in the compression it would be the valves and if the compression increases it is the rings.
    It should still fire at 60 lbs thow.

    Wet test showed psi's of 150++++. I put some oil in each cyl to possibly free up sticky rings... If not illorder new parts....

    Rings can become stuck after sitting for a while. But once you get the motor runnning they free up and reseat. Happens all the time. Just run it for a bit and your compression should jump way up. I had a zx900 I was working on last week that sat for 3+ years... After I first got it running it burnt oil and had low compression like 75 each cyl. It still ran with that low but it was boggy. Let it sit with wd40 in the cylinders over night and ran it up to full temp a few times. The oil went away and the compression went back to spec.

    Do the easy things first!
