Default Re: Compression too high.

Either use a pull start or remove the head and add an extra head gasket, some of these engine used to come with two head gaskets, some performance will be lost but it might help with getting it started and when its broke in good and loosened up a bit you can remove one of the gaskets and see if its easier to start.

My personal option would be a pull start regardless but pedal starting is fine if it can be done.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
