I've turned the bike on a three times since the rebuild. Once to check that it fired, another time to take it on a bit of a ride around the neighborhood the next day, and one final one to open it up a bit more and try to get the carb set up. I'm a bit concerned because the other day I walked up to the bike and was able to turn it over using just my hand... Should I check the compression?
I did check the ring gap and it was within spec, albeit a bit on the larger side (I don't remember the exact number, but I remember it was the largest possible in the range provided in the manual). I figured powerseal had matched the rings/piston to the cylinder since they did all the work, so I assembled and now I'm a bit worried...

Well run a comp test and see.....
I doubt there is anything wrong. Btw did you measure the ring gap correctly?

Since it's my first rebuild, I'm not sure.
I used the piston to push the rings evenly down into the bore and then dragged a feeler gauge in the gap. I used the ring grooves to make sure it was in evenly.

I haven't had a chance to check the compression. However, out of curiosity: Could it be the reeds? They seemed a bit separated from the housing (it's a Boyesen set up, but not sure which one exactly) when I put them back in....

no on the reeds. transfer pressure does not affect cranking pressure at speeds like you kick it over. take the reed box out and see what i mean while you test it.

Warmed it up and did a compression test... kind of. The threads on the loaner unit at the parts store didn't want to thread in very well. i put it in until I got resistance and got about 120psi. Then I ventured a bit more and threaded it in a bit farther and got about 172-175. assuming that's the highest it'd go (because I don't want to damage the threads on the head), is that a reasonable number
