  1. Is it normal for the CDI to have that glass...

    Is it normal for the CDI to have that glass looking material imbedded in the epoxy/silicone that seals the CDI when it is manufactured?

    There are no signs of water intrusion or corrosion inside...
  2. I haven't had much time to ride it unfortunately....

    I haven't had much time to ride it unfortunately. I did take it out for about an hour this past Saturday. It seems to be running perfectly. I took a pic of the plugs after the ride. Cylinder one has...

    I actually just got around to opening the CDI box this past Saturday. It is dry inside and appears to be in perfect condition. I don't know what the rough white stuff is though. It looks almost like...

    After exchanging messages with SeawardToast I am going to open up the CDI box to take a look at the condition. I've never opened it to inspect it. I'll post some pics once I get it open. Hopefully...

    I imagine the 150 is even more fun than the STX-R for that. Maybe this winter I'll get started on rebuilding the 150 I picked up with all the parts. It will be a total rebuild it looks like but it is...

    If I was to replace something ignition related what would that be?

    I appreciate that info. I've never done it for that long. Now that I know it can cause the engine to overheat I will be sure to not do it for long periods. It sure is fun though! :)

    Thanks for reading and following! I know this thread has become extremely long. I appreciate anyone who reads it all and tries to help.

    That is a very interesting thought about the ignition. I...

    PWC Engines rebuilt my crank. They are in NY. Here is a link: https://pwcengine.com/kawasaki-ultra-150-stxr-rebuilt-crankshaft/

    With the starter removed you can turn the motor in both directions. With the starter installed it will only spin in one direction.

    That does sound horrible. Any chance the counter shaft bearings...

    I agree but since I am not 100% positive it is safe to do I don't want to recommend it. Plus it does increase the compression reading so the results won't be accurate.

    Are you sure noise is coming from the motor and...

    Are you sure noise is coming from the motor and not the pump? Since you said it spins fine without the plugs installed I assume the noise is coming from the motor. Does it run or is the noise your...
  14. I would start off by recharging the battery. Then...

    I would start off by recharging the battery. Then remove the spark plugs and turn the motor over with the fuel off. I recommend doing that just in case the motor filled with gas or oil while sitting...
  15. I wanted to mention that I did check the...

    I wanted to mention that I did check the compression with the motor running using the O'Reilly's tester. It measured much higher with the motor running. It was hitting about 160 psi with the motor...

    I just took it out for a quick ride. I did about 10 WOT runs but for no longer than 5 seconds each. It seems to be running perfectly. Triple pissers all feel like the same temperature. I checked the...
  17. I picked up another compression tester from...

    I picked up another compression tester from O'Reilly's. It is similar to the Snap On tester. The Schrader valve is in the hose that connects to the head. The gauge doesn't have a hose on it. Just the...
  18. Either I am or this ski is cursed! I connected...

    Either I am or this ski is cursed! I connected the Harbor Freight compression tester and all the cylinders are reading about 20 PSI higher than the snap-on tester. They are all at just over or about...
  19. I agree but I burned up two pistons with the...

    I agree but I burned up two pistons with the stock heads installed. The ADA head has nothing to do with my issue.
  20. I emailed ADA Racing about this issue and they...

    I emailed ADA Racing about this issue and they told me it could be the compression tester hose. They said they had a Snap On compression tester that the hose failed on and was giving false readings....
  21. I remembered that I checked the compression...

    I remembered that I checked the compression before installed the exhaust and carbs and it was in the 70s then too. It is highly unlikely a low battery is the reason for my low compression reading. I...
  22. I agree. It runs perfectly in the water. I have...

    I agree. It runs perfectly in the water. I have to assume the issue is the battery or the starter isn't cranking fast enough to show the real compression level. Can I safely check the compression by...
  23. I finally got around to checking the compression...

    I finally got around to checking the compression tonight. I installed the compression gauge into one cylinder and left the spark plugs installed in the other two. This is with a cold engine and with...
  24. If I have time tomorrow night I will connect a...

    If I have time tomorrow night I will connect a fuel pump to a set of the carbs I have and test it. I am almost positive that you should not have to cap off the pulse line to test the pop off...

    That was my original plan but Steve made it sound like a short 10 second WOT run wouldn't be enough to tell me anything. I am afraid to go longer than that without knowing if I still have a lean...
