All right Steve - I did get my hands on a compression gauge.

I borrowed it from a buddy who has not (as to date) gotten lucky as a direct result of owning it but we'll see how I do with it.

Lovin' aside - the gauge proved my original claim that the damn thing runs like a top.

145 P.S.I.

That's even better than my Garelli Rallysport that clocks at 35!

So again I am at a loss.

The bike does try to start - right up until you crank the throttle at which point it just put puts and dies within about 5 seconds.

I'm not sure if the plug is getting anything - I didn't check that.

For all those kind and helpful enough to respond to my request for help I live about 4 blocks from Midway airport and the SOB's fly right over the house (There are cracks in the ceilings to prove it). I will gladly travel to Joliet/Morris and yes I am on the way to Evanston - though I wold even be willing to meet there if convenient.

Thanks for the replies I really do appreciate the help. Looking forward to additional insight.
