been kicking and kicking... ran great last year, pulled it out of storage and nothing.


it feels low on compression.


i did get it started once by bump starting on a hill. rode it for 5 min, ran and idled good. but still won't start off kicker.


it gets flooded but won't fire. i tried about everything, new plug, starting fluid, etc. i'm about ready to push it into the swamp.


 why does it feel low on compression after storage?
