Compression test

06 Suzuki C50 Boulevard

I got the compression tester and don’t have an owner manual. This is my first time doing this and want to make sure I don’t do something wrong.

I know to unplug the two spark plugs and hook the compression tester to one cylinder at a time of course, then have the throttle all the way down.

Is there anything else I should unplug or do before starting the test?

The sequence is the same for motorcycles as with cars. Also a warm engine will read slightly higher compression than a cold engine.
