I lost all power after about 45 min of riding on country roads(~20 miles). almost all at WOT. around 26mph average. after losing power, it rolled another 50ft idling like shit and then died. wouldn't start so i verified spark and compression. that's when i noticed low compression. I had tested this motor before with the same compression tester and was right about 120. from the pics, it's now at ~85.

a friend had me pull the head/top aparts and take pics.

first time opening a motor. wooooo!
