Running without auto decomp?

Recommended Posts

so my crf250r 2007, had a ticking sound, so got the head off, valves in spec, chain good, but the auto decomp had some play and the spring wasnt good anymore. can i run my bike without auto decomp or will this have bad side effects?

The decompression mechanism shaft fits loosely in the recess in the cam. Seems like it shouldnt but it just does.

Also I dont think there is any advantage to getting rid of it.

It would definetaly make starting the bike harder which is why its there in the first place.

Usually if there is a noise issue because of the decompressor its because the idle is too low.

Besides the obvious hard to start issue if it was removed, other problems could begin such as kickback damage and possibly breaking the kickstart lever.
