N6 Compression


You need at least 110psi to run a honda 600. 160 is new rebuild spec. 150 is normal. Maybe your gauge is bad. I made a leak down set with an air compressor regulator and a hose from my compression tester. Dont forget to brace the crank with 17 or 22mm wrench and if doing a leak down might loosen all valves more than normal.

Some N6 have the valve seat issue where it pounds into the head and you can never keep an adjustment.
