tech ? compression

7 posts in this topic

On an 08 450 yzf what should the compression be?

I have 50 psi is that low?

I'm getting a lot of oil coming out of the side blow off tube at the bottom left.

Any thoughts?

That's a little low, yes, but with auto decompression, normal isn't lot higher. Check the valve timing, then have a leak down test done.

Well I pulled the top end last night and found that the 2 outer intake valves have a ton of build up on them almost the thickness of a popsicle stick!

I'm thinking this is what's been causing all my issues!!

Perhaps the valves are hanging up and not sealing.

Can you please tell how many hours is on the motor, what jetting you have and what gas you use.

That carbon build up is easily removed when soaked in wd40.

Learned this trick from my wife's uncle who builds motors for various top fuel guys.

the crazy thing is that it was only the outer ones. the inner one was clean as can be
