Bike in bad shape - may be time to put the ol' girl down.

Well, the shop just called - compression check #3 cylinder failed badly.   If the engine is shot it may be time to put the ol' girl down.  If that happens, I am going to pay the shop for their work and put the bike out to pasture.  I want to sell it for parts, can most shops accomodate that?  They must have reals with the salvage people.

For all DC Area / Northern VA / Maryland GPZ owners:  This bike has a BRAND NEW chain and sprockets and BRAND NEW Metzeler ME-88 Marathon tires and a BRAND NEW ignition switch as well as lots of other extras including:  OEM Saddlebags/mounts, perfect unscratched front faring lowers, Corbin seat, custom bar risers from this list, Throttlemeister.  If the engine is shot I'm not going to be able to move the bike, if you want parts we'll have to go to the shop or arrange something.

Is cylinder #3 the one that has an oiling problem on the ZX-11 engine?
