No compression at all

Why would my sons 1987 honda fourtrax 250x not have any compression at all? Im praying it doesn't need a motor. I think he ran it out of oil.

no compression at all ?, tells me the rings on piston are bad ?, posb a valve bent/stuck open ? would be my guesses :).
and if he did run it without oil ?, very well could have ruined the cylinder and piston !.
I highly doubt partzilla will have the parts you need for your trx250x ?, as most parts for these old models are discontinued today !. your best bet would be to give psn ( power sports nation ) a call, and see if they have any used parts for your model ?.
