ok, so i just got done with the compression check and it came out about 150psi so it's not too bad. The honda mechainc that did the comp check said he thought the plug was lean but not dangerously lean. I borrowed the autozone compressiom check kit but it didn;t work because it was for big toy plugs.
I also tried taking plates out of the supertrapp. There were 8 and I took it down to 2 and that made it run even worse.
gonna replace the jets when they get here in the mail and then complete Dave's mods if it seems as though I'm on the right track.
