Loss of compression?
Posted February 09, 2004 - 08:00 AM
Just wondering if anyone has any ideas. Basically my bike has lost a lot of compression for no reason. I rode my bike and put it away in my garage two days later went out to start it and nothing it seemed like it was flooded so i drained the carb and tried starting it and it sounded like it was bogging so i tried bump starting it. nothing. next day went back out to it and it had lost a lot of its compression. i have tried turning the petrol of kicking through 40 times and no compression regained also tried with the decomp lever in.nothing.
the decomp appears to be moving smoothly as i took the bolt out of the side of the cylinder and can see a small cylindrical connector turning.
i have a spark, petrol is going through and air appears to be ok. any ideas at all anyone. id really appreciate if you could help.
I cant understand this as before i put it away it had loads of compression and was riding really well.

I think guys will help you here, but you have to give them more info. I would list your bikes details so everyone will know exactly which bike and whats on it. Then you have to at least do some small things like change the oil, check plug etc, and give feedback.
