Tomos Targa LX Compression problem

Soo heres the problem..... Today on a long ride im riding and all of a sudden my 96 Tomos LX screeches and cuts out. I start it back up and keep going but it happens again. On the way back it cut out another 2 or 3 times and then just wouldnt start back up.

I think its a compression problem because the pedals are turning backwards too easily it seems but im not too mechanically inclined. Can anyone help me?

sounds like your oil pump quit. you need to look at two things first. check your compression with a guage. you want it to be 120 lbs or higher. next, drop your exhaust pipe and look up into the exhaust port. while looking in the [port, roll the engine over slowly and look at the piston side wall. scratches on the side wall are a good indication of what is wrong.
