Does a '99 XR250 have auto decompression for kicking?

I'm looking at a '99, and I'm used to my '86. There's no decompression cable going to the kickstarter on the'99, but it feels like there is some decompression. Either that, or the compression is low.

Is there something on the cam like my WR? I need to know so I can tell if this bike has low compression.

Thanks in advance,


Yes - the 99 XR250 has auto decompression on the cam. Here is a diagram showing the parts on the cam. Bike Bandit
