Engine warm, throttle full open, in order to do a proper compression test.  Also, the bike needs some miles on it.  Not a never run top end, although even that should make more than 90 psi.  

Did you verify valve clearances?

Yeah valve clearance checked but didn't have throttle fully open!

Update; got it to 110 psi with throttle open!
