What do you do, kick it over a number of times and see what the reading is?
Or can this issue just be ignored, let it burn a little oil and keep riding it?

I will first take the suggestion of doing a cold compression check, and then a warm one. What is the acceptable compression number? Does the compression check tell me if the rings are sealing ok, or does it tell if the valves are fully closed, or maybe both. Any further tests to indicate more specific head or rings issues?
