    Most likely the oil in the carbs was oil and gas mix, but the gas evaporated over time, leaving just the oil.

    These blue Fuji engines are quite reliable. The weak point is the fuel system. Keep...

    Welcome to the Hulk.

    155-160 is kind of hi compression. I'm wondering if the previous owner fogged the engine for extended storage and is the reason for the slightly higher compression reading?

    Absolutely correct ^^^^^^

    Not much HP gain from just boring a 750. The 780 porting is different and that's what makes more HP.

    Just as reference 750 = 80 HP while the 780 makes 92+ HP

    Forgot to mention, check your rubber hoses. If the one going out gets too hot, they get soft. When that happens, it's possible it may collapse when under way. Usually it's good at slower speeds but...

    The screen may be clear, but what about the other end? It's a tiny hole that can easily become clogged.

    Very similar in engine performance. Obviously the big difference would be the handling. The SLX has a flatter bottom which would make it almost "slide out" in a hard turn. The Pro 1200 should carve a...

    Pro 785 cyls are nikasil plated. If you do rings, normal honing stones won't work.

    115 psi is a tad low, but would be fine for running like that.
