Is it a good idea to cut off the decompression mechanism??

I`m pretty sure that the ticking noise from my top end is to do with the decompression mechanism on the exhaust cam and have read that many people simply cut them off. Can they not be fixed or is it best to get rid of it completely?

I think most are going to recommend to cut it off..... someone once posted a quick diagram of where to cut to minimize the effort to get the mechanism off the cam.

I think I have the same tick. How do you plan to compensate for the loss of the decomp mechanism?
