Compression test says what ?
Leak down test ?
If it was ok before then it's probably not the rear oil tube needing a restrictor and it's probably not the return either . I would do those tests 1st as they won't cost money and will give you an indication of engine condition before disassembly , and help you decide what to look at as you tear it apart . Good luck ,Red

I noticed that the crankcase breather hose (vented to the atmosphere) had a kink in it.....Might not have been open all the way...I was wondering if that would keep the top end oil from returning to the sump properly....and have oil building up around that rear exhaust valve stem? This bike has a belt primary and all the chain and primary oiler stuff has been blocked off and the sump vented thru one hose..I hope to be riding this one soon...
