Suzuki Hayabusa Gen 1
Compression and Leak Down Testing (Part2)
In Suzuki Hayabusa Gen 1 – Diagnose Mysterious Ignition Miss (Part 1), Brock demonstrated the ignition miss and explained what had been unsuccessfully tried previously to resolve it. He asked for the viewer’s thoughts/input and addressed those items in the comments section (please read).
Now that the bike is back on the lift, Brock dives into not only disassembling Scott’s beautiful Gen 1 Hayabusa but also addresses the proper way (in his humble opinion) to test for any other issues that could possibly be a problem, as well as issues that could quickly turn this series from a relatively simple repair into a full-blown engine rebuild. Watch as Brock explains how “he” attacks problems as unsolved mysteries have bitten him in the past….complete with stories, of course.
Brock not only performs a compression test but also fine-tunes his estimate of the engine’s overall condition by performing a leak-down test and documenting his results. Of course, Brock tries to explain his hypothesis and actions in terms that rookies and experienced wrenches alike can understand and appreciate.
