900 zxi low compression

i bought a 1995 900Zxi jetski that needs carbs but i decided to do a comp. test 1st just with the starter turning the engine i get 95,100,100 psi... is that horrible should i cut my losses or cont with the carb work
I recently bought a '95 900 zxi machine. Prev owner ran a comp check right before my eyes with a screw-in tester. Read 96 lbs, nearly identical on all cyl. At home I repeated the test with 2 different hand-held gauges, and got 114 lbs on one, and 119 lbs on the other... again nearly identical readings on all 3 cyl. The book value is 121 lbs new. My machine runs great... it will nearly throw you off the back on aceleration. I don't know which gauge is most accurate, but it is good if all 3 cyl read close to the same. Good luck.

no not bad kawasaki motors run lower like that idk why but they do as long as the numbers are about 85 pounds or more on a kawasaki jetski motor and are not more than 10 to 15 pounds off from each cylinder your good...
