Question Can I borrow a compression tester?
I need to test the compression on my parts bike engine. I would only need it for an afternoon, and I would even let you help me do the compression check on both my engines, the rebuilt engine and the one in my bike now.

I have an 85 VF500f Interceptor.

My bikes are in Oregon City.......

Thanks in advance!
Aaron

I borrowed one from O'Reilleys for free. You don't have anything like that down there?

I have not done it yet, busy with work this week. I was planning on doing this tomorrow afternooon. I just need to verify the compression on the rebuilt motor before I swap it in, and check the motor in my bike now to see a comparison.

I have not tried it on a bike yet, but have been using a leak down tester on race motors (V Eight) since the 80's. I do not have a metric adapter yet as I am still making that slow and painful crossover.
