does anyone know what the compression was when they were new so i can tell how much it has dropped.

also whenever i take the air box cover off there is always a little oil in the botom of the box. is this unusual ?

the bike is a 99 model xtz660

Out of interest, after doing a lot of dirt riding, do you get much crap from the rear tyre up into the air box?

thanks

Hi Derek, I've had my 99 Tenere for a few months now and I find the air box is usually pretty oily, might be from the oiled foam filter, however do not have a pool of oil at the bottom. Not sure about this one.
I don't have a service manual for the 95 to 99 tenere, however from the 91 model XTZ660 service manual the compression is quoted at 9.2 : 1. This is the 3YF motors, not sure how different they where. The 2008 model Tenere is 10 : 1. Maybe the 95 to 99 model bike might be somewhere in between.
Hope this help
Damo
