Friends could you help me with the compression that is obtained from the factory in the CanAm Maverick X3 1000 turbo XRS year 2018, since I have my doubts and I checked each cylinder and I get a compression of 125

Agree that a leak-down test will provide more info. A leak-down test will not only give you another way of looking at the health of the cylinders but will help you identify the source of the leak. Also, unlike a compression test, altitude doesn't affect the readings. A compression test cannot be compared to a standard without adjusting the reading for density altitude which affects the results by ~4% per every 1000' above sea level. Where I live, a compression test will show ~36% low on a typical summer day.
