MK5 Cylinder balance
« on: 29 Apr 2018 at 11:16 »
For something to do, while the weather is so uncertain, other than polish it again. I thought I would check the balance of the two cylinders.A neighbour has just bought a carb. balance meter and since his car isn`t quite at the stage where he could use it we thought we would try it on the MK5.The compression on both cylinders is identical at 115lbs. When the bike is on tick over, using the flow meter I noticed the pressure on the right-hand cyl . is slightly down to the left cyl.This is the one I have had the problem where the float has been soldered.Could this have anything to do with it, such as the level may not be the same Len
