my honda has a decompress lever and when i first got it the gas tank sat on the valve so it had no comression.

it could also mean u need to clean ur carbs

Re: WONT START

it sounds like your timing is off. also clean, and reset your points located under the magneto cover on the left side.

i had a friend look at it and he said it seems like it has no compression also. my question is how was it fine the night before but not working the next day. also im on the edge of buying a speed kit and stuff like that but i would like to know what the problem is before i invest some money into it

Re: WONT START

SPARK PLUG! Change that first! Check the points also if it isn't the plug, like Paul said. don-ohio
