    well i was looking around honda-tech and saw a thread about compression for someone else's 96 gsr.

    his gsr got like 210 on all cylinders

    when i got mine tested it was like 170 ~172 for all cylinders. what does this mean? what should it be if the motor is in perfect condition? what causes this? what fixes it? piston rings? would there be a significant difference if i were to fix it? should i fix this? etc.

    mine is a 96 gsr with 46k miles on it. info on this is appreciated

    It's Saturday and today is the CT BBQ. You probably won't hear anything until tomorrow or Monday.

    are they like that all across the board?? around 170??

    you want them to all be within like 10% of each other or so...

    you are ok, just as pills said, if the numbers are within 10% of each other, you're all good.
