i have a '83 honda pa50II, and i was wondering what the decompression lever does? i've noticed that if the moped isn't running that great, i'll hit it, and then she runs better. why is that?
i've also noticed some sparks when the lever is pushed back to whence it came, is that normal?
i think this is all related to when something strange happened to my moped. all of a sudden, she wasn't running great, i thought it was the battery, but it wasn't, and now i just think it's the cold. the decomp is a decent solution for now, i just want to know what it's actually doing.
