Leave the othher plugs in just disconnect the wires, and take the key out, put the tester in, and pull 10 times fast, and hard, get back to us, and tell us the readings after you try that.

Pull all 3 plugs and ground them out (if you don't you could kill your CDI). Wrap some string/wire/whatever around your throttle so it's pinned to the handlebar (wide open). Make sure your key is off and your kill switch is down. Thread the compression tester into the first plug hole and pull 5 times. Record that reading. Move onto the next plug hole. Same 5 pulls. Record the reading. Same for the final hole.

You want something around 125 psi (or more) and no more than a 10% difference between your highest and lowest recorded reading.
