compression release

Recommended Posts

I have an 84 XR500. I was told that I can use the compression release to shut down the engine in the event that the kill switch will not work. Also that when it shuts down, it will be easier to start because it will be at TDC. Is this true?

Sure you will stop the motor, but I would think that you would risk causing valve issues.
