    Anyone have any clue what the proper cylinder compression is for the Kawasaki FH 500V? It's not listed in any of the factory manuals that came with the engine.

    Compression should be in the 110-120 psi range. Minimun spec 57 psi.

    I just checked Kawasaki's website for this info. It didn't list it either. I bet if you called them at (949) 770-0400 they could tell you.

    Good luck,
