actually I bought the bike used and put in the truck, brought it home and immediately tore it down for a valve adjust. BTW you don't need to turn the motor over for a leak down test, so it is safe to loosen the cam towers.(provided it is at tdc) Unfortunately the lesson to learn here is: when you buy a used bike, (even though from an inmate) it may not have gotten proper maintenance.
I appreciate the feed back from you guys, it was very helpful. The worst part of a diagnose and fix is not riding the bike especially during perfect weather!
