Is this bike's Compressor problem??

Recommended Posts

A couple of days back, I had started my CD 100 SS, 1993 model which is very rarely used at my native place . I was pretty happy that the bike started after 2 long years of continuous non usage . I was happy that the bike started and I used it for one full day without any issues . The second day the issue started and the bike never started . The kicker went down without any force , I initially thought it should be a clutch plate problem but I could never start the bike . Later consulted a mechanic who tried all possible things by checking spark plug, cleaning carburetor, jet etc . But nothing happened and finally he declared the compressor had failed and also the piston rings should be replaced . Even though the bike is of 1993 model but still I think maximum only 50k kms should be the odo reading .

Guy's please advice me whether it would be worth doing this job for my old bike or simply go for a new bike keeping the fact in mind that very rarely the bike will be used and an old bike may give more troubles .

What your mechanic is saying might be true & that can be only said after physically examining your bike.

As your old bike is already having worn-out or expired or hardened rubber components & that might give you trouble the more & more you drive your bike.

And if you want to use you bike daily then i'd suggest you to go for a brand new bike,

I agree with you as the bike is old and you haven't driven it from the past 2 years, engine work might strike you and your pocket..

As it has not been used for such a long time, there are chances that the crank pin or the gudgeon pin could have been damaged. hence because of that kick is going down freely. Check the engine oil also. if there is no oil then the piston rings would have also got damaged. A complete overhauling would be necessary.

Go for a good mechanic and try to get the genuine parts. Its a nice bike to maintain.
