Wouldn't a compression test give an indication of a ring issue?
Seems like a fairly simple way to test.

A member told me the same thing last night. Although I didn't completely understand how to do the test nor do I believe I have the adapter that I need. Waiting on his response actually

Well my question was already answered. Just bought a new gauge. Ive been left the thread. But if it confuses your old grumpy soo much why bother commenting nothing useful. I asked and received a answer. Apparently someone else is in need of information and needs a answer. For those who do not know what the they are talking about why not enlighten them rather than troll dumb comments that don't seem to help anyone. Then again half the thread is old guys reliving their glory days through the forum. @stancedsi welcome to the forum xD

Stancedsi. . .tell us what your riding, mileage/history/issues/etc, and maybe we can help you out. Some of the "old guys" reliving their glory days on this forum, and several posting in this thread, have forgotten more about motorcycles than some talking little punks will ever know. The truth is, we're usually pretty good at finding issues and describing fixes too. We need detailed information in order to help though, post it up when you can.

I could venture a guess it has something to do with the wall of shame, but that's just a hunch, his incoherent verbiage is incredibly confusing. I could also venture a guess that he wouldn't run that smart mouth if he weren't behind a keyboard. . .

Just sounds to me like it's time for someone who knows what they are doing to fix your bike. You could have had a professional do it and been back on the road and a lot less stress. You obviously aren't quailed if your testing fuel injection pressure with a vacuum/low fuel pressure gauge.
