    1990 XR 600r Auto Decompressor?

    I recently bought a1990 XR 600r, it seemed to run fine. When I got it home I discovered that it ran fine at idle and up to about 2000rpm's but after that it ran extremely rough and white smoke blew out of it . Took it to a Honda dealer to have them look at it, they said slider in carb is worn and part of choke is broken, also has very low compression [62psi] I brought it home , when I first got it you could feel the compression stroke when kicking it over, where now there is no compression stroke, maybe once every 15 kicks or so. Does this bike have a Auto Decompressor that might have malfunctioned, the manuel decompressor cable has been detached. The bike sat and ran very well at first at low rpm's no oil leak or strange noises of any kind, I assumed it was basically a good bike that I could enjoy with a little TLC Would appreciate any input Thanks Wayne
