The problem was at first that it wouldn't start. So I took out the plugs, one dirty but the other had no gap. I set the correct one. The starter turned and turned, but the noise of the starter clutch missing was now gone, just the starter motor turning. I have a new starter clutch on order and I was hoping to make sure the bikes starts when I want to bring it to a garage for the starter clutch to be fitted. I tried to kickstart it. Compression is fairly low. I can now operate the kickstart with my hand. Occasionally when operating the kickstart with the ignition off, the compression returns briefly.
