XVS 1100 bad pistonrings taking oil
I did a thread about a xvs 1100 that is taking oil,bad pistonrings! but I can`t Found it any more
I did a compression test to day and the front cylinder where 12,6 bar = 182,7 PSi
and the rear cylinder where 10,1 bar = 146,5 Psi dry and with oil added in the cylinder it was 12,6 bar = 182,7 psi so it seeams to that I have a bad pistonrings in the rear cylinder.
The bike has only done 25000 km = 40 000 miles.
Can it be because I have a exhaust pipe that is "without silencing" and it has been running to hot because of that the pistonrings?
(I do have a silencing, but it does make som noice the bike, I don`t know how to explain, but you get it any way I guess)
I need a tips, where to buy the parts I nead, pistonrings, gasket and oil.
I live in Europe so I would like to have tips for a partdealer in Us and Europe.
