I have a 2006 roadliner that needs the front tire
if both wheels are off the ground then you should be ok to remove front wheel,when you take the spindle out and remove wheel from between forks put the spindle back through both forks and use a axel stand or something to prop under the spindle just to be safe so it wont tip forwards.

Missing at all speeds
It sounds as though you have the wrong MAP in thePower Commander. If the unit was installed By the Dealer you need to return the bike and request that they check the bike out. It sounds like you may be running lean. This could be very bad for the bike

I woudl like to
The colour codes are usually on a sticker or label attached to the frame, somewhere (generally bike is stripped of painted parts to find this info)....they are also usually printed on the info/specs page of the owner's handbook.
The link below should provide you with correct information you're after however, cheers!

What should the cylinder compression be on a 1966 Yamaha 100cc twin jet motorcycle?
I remember these lightweight steeds that had an almost cult following in the UK, resulting in a large number of tuning parts becoming available at reasonable prices.
The noise of a gaggle of them pulling away from the lights all at once could and did break the windows of nearby houses.
The compression pressure of an exhaust tuned 2-stroke engine is necessarily quite low - because the cylinder capacity and the compression ratio "grows" at the rpm the reflected exhaust pressure wave effectively blocks the exhaust port and the engine power suddenly increases. Yamaha engines of that time were notoriously "sudden"...
I don't know the exact compression pressure but I would be happy if I did a test and achieved around 100 psi. My Suzuki of a similar design produced 105 psi on the kick starter. Much more pressure than that and there would be a danger of the fuel detonating in the cylinder when the engine "was on the port", usually resulting in a hole melted in a piston.
