  • Compression?

    Not looking for a new motor but I was looking at all things Gen 1 and saw this listing.

    The engine is sitting on a table. How would he get a viable compression number? Is he hot wiring the starter or is he spinning the crank with a drill from one of the ends, or is this a "simulation"?

    My guess would be the starter. Should be easy enough.

      $895 seems like a bit much when you can pick up complete bikes for $1500

        That engine is sitting in the frame in the video.
        I would be more concerned about revving a cold engine to redline. Hope it was already warm.
