So here goes the first of probably many dumb questions. So I just bought a 95 XR600R. It's my first 'real' dirt bike as I've been riding a KLR650. I bought it from a friend-of-a-friend knowing that I don't know much about the bike but it seems to be in great condition, very clean etc. I was going through the Haynes manual tonight and familiarizing myself with what is what when I find a loose cable fitting on the top-right side of the engine. I discover that it is for the decompression lever cable. But I have no cable and no lever. I can start this thing without too much trouble. About three cycles of the kick-start and I can feel it 'catch', one good kick and it starts. So what am I missing and why might I be missing it? Is this some kind of common modification or am I looking at getting flung off this thing at some point/broken leg? Thanks for any help. Craig One other really 'obvious' question. Is 91 octane what you guys would recommend for the XR600R?
