Need to do a compression test on the cylinders. Not sure of acceptable numbers. Maybe Mr.RPM a senior member would know the acceptable compression numbers.

How cold has the weather been?
How high is the humidity level?
How far does it get ridden?
Does rear of engine get too hot to touch (it should)
Try getting it hot and doing an oil change, could well be water/condensation in the oil

I'm not a complete idiot, but, I'm working on it

Thats a good "?" May be able to check and match spark plug threads to one up at a the parts store. They usually have the loan-a-tool program and could help.

I've found that 175 psi is about what your looking for. See this link: Compression Check

Yes, I would think so but i don't know by how much as the 175 looks to be for the 800's.

I would think that both of the 500's cylinders should be real close to the same numbers though. Wished I could help more. I suggest that you may want to call a couple of the dealers like the ones suggested on this site or your local dealer to get the numbers as it would depend on the make/year/model specifics. I'm not sure how "freely" they will give this type of info out but I would think that MrRPM would be the best bet for an outside source on this type of info.

For instance, the 2012 numbers listed here.
For the 800 - Bore x Stroke 91 x 62 mm
For the 500 - Bore x Stroke 82 x 47 mm
