i tot i had fouled my plugs so i tried changing new plug..but still refuse to start n i pulled out the plug n found dat it's wet with engine oil :applause: ..
i also juz found dat i had a kink in my crank breather hose.. cud it be becoz my valve seals damage due to the kinked breather hose :) i still have compression on my bike...n i checked the plug sparks n it seems ok...i'm thinking dat the valve seals r gone... :eek:
