I can not find detailed instructions on how to perform a compression test on this particular bike, 1985. I am assuming, spark plug removed, gauge inserted, throttle open all the way and hit the starter?
If this is correct, I have a question.
The carbs are not currently installed. Do I need to install them, and hook up the cables to do this? Wouldnt performing the comp test without them be virtually the same as "throttle wide open"?
