164 psi @ 350 rpm. Section 8 of the manual (http://www.superhawk996.net/Honda_VT...ice_Manual.pdf), instructions for compression testing start on 8-2.

That's awesome-70k miles. So what did your's measure? I was just up in your neck of the woods a couple months ago at the state fire college to renew my certification.

When you do the compression test make sure you open the throttle all the way to get an accurate reading. It the throttle plates aren't open the motor can't fill itself with air as easily and can skew compression readings....I've made that mistake once.

Don`t forget too that your altitude (ie. atmospheric pressure) will affect your reading also....
