No history on this Bike. Pawn shop find. Felt like good compression. Previous owner removed lights , signals. Cleaned carb, flush gas, fresh plugs, oil. Many cranks got it started. drives fine, more riding freed the clutch plates. Consistently starts and runs/ idles on third kick. Idles fine without choke. LOTs of blue smoke. Small leak in the exhaust joint I’m ok to tackle. For fun today I put my compressor gauge (new) on this cold engine and could only get 60 max psi. I did the compression test to rule out bad rings but I’m now not sure why this is running? carb is set per factory adjustment. Casing seals could help the blue smoke. But way curious about this low compression and starting / running great for a 45 year bike . Any thoughts / comments are welcome!
