Compression specs

Can someone tell me what the compression specs are on an 08 Teryx?

Also, FST if you are there, can you send me pricing on a standard bore kit complete to Utah?

Thanks, i think i burned up my rings and just want to get some test and contingency info.

Thanks,

Anyone have the specs on what the compression is supposed to test out at?

Thanks, and FST, are those in stock?

The manual says warm engine thoroughly, then crank with throttle wide open for several revolutions, when gauge stops rising stop and read. Compression should be between 36-66psi or 251-456 kPa

Thanks guys!
One more questions then. If by chance the sleeves are bad also, what would be my next option?

840 Kit?
How much are they currently?

Your gonna spend about 1500 if you are doing it yourself and having FST do the cylinder jugs. If you are getting a shop to do the install, add another 800 to 1200 approx.

Well by now you should know if you have to go to a 840 or not but your cost with the cylinders done would be $1409.

Well, a little history.
Went to check my oil last week before the trip this coming weekend. and was down almost a quart..........not sure how that happened, but I know I checked it the ride before last and it was fine. The Air filter was pretty clogged as well.

My Dad is a mechanic, and was pretty sure I had burned up the rings....took it apart (STUPID [email protected]#$%^^^& PLASTIC FASTENERS) Did a compression test and everything was up to spec. We checked inside the plenum and the carbs and there is no sign of any grit or wear. I am going to change the oil and run it hard this weekend to test it out.

Any thoughts are welcome, and yes it was stupid not the check the oil much more frequently, i think it has to do with getting the camping an riding gear for my wife and three kids ready instead of babying my machine like i did in the past.

Thumbs down More INFO

Ok,
Took the Teryx out this weekend, after cleaning the air filter, and changing the oil. The levels were perfect, and the rig ran great......however, got it home and there is once again no oil on the dip stick.

The air filter is clean and dry, My dad followed me around all weekend, and never saw any smoke.

What is going on, what can i check first?

Thanks,
