    Hi all,

    I have a fairly new to me 2000 te610 (dirt model, no e-start and a left kicker). Does anyone know if it has an automatic decompressor? The manual I have doesn't show one (though it's pretty crappy). I was trying to do a compression test today and the best I could manage was 70 psi, with an average of more like 60 psi.

    I have a 2000 te610 and that has a manual decompression via a lever on the handlebars :thumbsup:

    Yes, it has an auto decompressor on the cam shaft.

    it does on the cam gear, however, its prone to fail, the tiny spring breaks easy..

    Bump!.... The mechanism is backordered. How can you repair the spring or can you remove the whole thing altogether??
