Your problem has been seen before by at least 2 other TT'ers. It may be directly linked to your compression release.
Both other guys compression came back as well.

basically if they decide not to start and you kick them over long enough they seem to lose compression. my answer was to leave it alone for about 3 days as well as fresh fuel and plug burnt off on the gas cooker.
the bike started up and when i stopped it and did the compression kick it was solid again. it can't be anything but the rings and i feel it must be something to do with fuel wash on one face of the bore allowing the rings to sit off the cylinder wall on that side allowing the fuel charge by.

pull the valve cover and see if the valve bucket is staying down(or if it has way more clearance than normal)on the compression release side. The bucket will mushroom over slightly and cause it to "STICK" in the shim bucket bore. sometimes turning the motor over frees it temporarily BUT!!! you must remove the bucket and chamfer the top edge! because the problem will reappear and could bend that valve or worse if it hangs down deep enough, besides the damage it is doing to the bucket bore.
