Good question. Show us the psi or kpa of each cylinder. I think from memory they can fluctuate between 5 to 10 psi. If they fluctuate any larger than the 5 to 10 psi. Add abit of oil down the cylinder. If compression increase's or helps, maybe you seals or valves arn't closing properly. Can't remember the exact difference's.
But if you would like to know I can find out.
Sorry Sir, l'll stop drinking & Surfing
