Re: cbr 929

Ah.. a compression check. remove the fuel tank and the air box so you can finally see the top of the engine. remove the spark plugs, and you might want to see if theres a way to ground the spark for when you crank the engine over, because some styles of ignitions can be damaged if the spark isnt grounded, then you just thread a compression gauge into the spark plug hole. make sure you open the throttle all the way to allow maximum airflow to the engine. and i just checked my manual and it says you should have 178 psi in the cylinder. so i think as long as your not below 160 or so you got a pretty strong engine

Re: cbr 929

you can get a compression gauge at most auto parts stores or even wal mart. you just gotta make sure you have the right size threads on it for your engine. mine happened to come with 3 different size threads because its a snap-on and rediculously overpriced.

Re: cbr 929

thats not normal.. it could be the cam chain, or if its more of a ticking noise that could be your valves. if its a knock though hopefully is just something to do with the cam chain because thats an easier repair that something in the bottom end of your engine, such as a connecting rod bearing or whatever. i can look in my manual later today and see if theres a way to check for cam chain tension
