180psi with airfilter still installed:
Damn it, what was your tuning kit for higher compression?

The highest ever reading I got was 145psi at 5000km in Anchorage. Now 114psi both sides might have to do with elevation, temperature and a "few days of use" in tropical surrounding.
OK, pure envy talking here, and we may not forget these manometer are often quite a bit out of calibration. That is why you prefer to have 2 units for cross reference.

May I just suggest you to include in your video to open the airfilter box, because a clogged airfilter will affect the readings badly. Once I really got shocked by 40psi, as soon I opened the air box reading was good again.
Nice video and good tip with the "crocodile switch".
Thank you, Van.

Best regards from where the summer starts.

With a DIY foam air filter the rig runs well even in tropical rain. The air box looks then like an aquarium. :moto:
Final drives: 1. at 5000km, 2. at 34.000km(+friction plates)
transmission: 1. 39.000km. 2. on its way.

Albuquralque, had a good idea i saw once he suggested to pull the fuse to the pump then crank with the starter. :cheers:

Remember, there's a good chance that your fuse panel is mounted upside down from the way it's shown in the wiring diagram. Therefore, fuse #1 would be on the bottom on the bike.

Look at the wiring diagram and compare with the fuse panel on your bike.

Should be whichever one on the end has the red and blue wires. You can also put a meter on it, if it's 12V live, that's the one.
