    New SBT engine burning oil

    I have a 2006 kawasaki stf-15f with a new motor 1 1/2 years ago. I pulled the plugs and the #4 cylinder had a oily plug. I did a dry and wet compression. Dry #1 150 #2 150 #3 152 #4 178 Wet #1 250 #2 240 #3 245 #4 210. Are these out of wack? To me it looks like could be rings on the #4 cylinder. Not sure but can anybody identify a problem?

    Thanks

    Sadly this is a common problem with SBT engines.... actually I'm surprised it lasted that long..... time for a new barrel and rings
