IMHO taking pistons out of the carbs does not influence the cylinder presure
It might be of influence of the problem Rene's GT has though. A stuck or bad
moving piston might be a propable cause....
These things are easily visible when the filters are removed and the engine
is running.
Both pistons should move freely when the throttle is moved.

When you check the compression, you might want to take the pistons out of
the carbs to make sure the carbs aren't the problem, before you go pulling
off the head.
