Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, check:
presence of spark at the sparkplug tip/electrode;
fuel entering the combustion chamber. You can check this by removing the air filter assembly and covering the mouth of the carb with the palm of your hand;
it may also just be that the combustion chamber has too much 2T oil, try replacing you sparkplug.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

My Suzuki GS 500E has low compression

Low compression is typically a sign of worn piston rings. The fix is very expensive - overhaul of the engine. You may find it is more economical to replace your motorcycle.

Before you go over the edge, I suggest you have your engine looked at by a professional, who can ascertain if in fact your compression is low and will have a prety good guess at the cause and the repairs required.

You can probably get some more miles from your motorcycle by using heavier grade oil ... if it is worn rings, it will ONLY get worse, it will not improve.

Hero honda splendor is my bike it has problem of oil is coming in spark plug & spark plug is short how can solve this problem

The Honda Splendor has a 4 stroke engine and can have worn valve seals or rings. If the engine smokes while riding it may be time for a top end re-build. You should complete a compression test to evaluate the condition of the piston and valves. If the compression is low ( under 120 psi ) it is time for a top end re-build.

One cyllinder is compressing at 110 and the remainder at 92

Squirt oil in your cylinders and recheck the compression. If your compression goes up you have bad rings. Check your valve tolerances to make sure that the valves are not being held open only because they are adjusted too tight. This would cause compression loss. If the valves were bent because the timing belts slipped or broke You may have to replace the valves to get compression back up. If the engine has low compression because there are 300,000 miles on the bike you may just need a complete overhaul or a new motorcycle. If you had at least 110 compression on all cylinders and they were all with in 10 pounds of each other you could still be riding on low octane fuel.

I am working on a 2005 KX250F. It had a bad spark so the CDI was replaced. Still won't start. Compression is about 65 psi cold. Valves are fair using a leak down tester. Tried using starter fluid in the...

65PSI is way to low. It probably won’t run at 88PSI either. Put a small drop of engine oil (20w50 or similar) into the cylinder and do the compression test again. If there is a big improvement in compression it means the piston rings are worn and you will have to do a top-end overhaul. As a very rough guide you need 150PSI for a 4 stroke engine and about 120PSI for a 2 stroke engine.

HI dude! got a problem trying to find out where this bike is made

I do not recommend this bike. Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki are good choices. You can find a dealer all over the world. The bike is junk the first time a part fails if you can't get parts and service. Seen any dealers in your city? The bike is made in Taiwan. Here's the info you asked for, even though I advise against it. Top speed 65 to 70 mph Overall Height1170 mm (46.1 inches) Overall Width880 mm (34.6 inches) Overall length2110 mm (83.1 inches) Seat height810 mm (31.9 inches) Wheelbase1375 mm (54.1 inches) Fuel capacity - reserve12 l (3.2 gallon US) Dry weight126 kg (277.8 pounds) Enduro-Offroad ModelVR 150X ENGINE Type149 cc, air cooled, single cylinder, 4-stroke Standard compression 145 lbs Power13.5 hp (10.1 kW) @ 8300 rpm Bore x stroke (mm)62 mm x 49.5 mm Compression ratio9.6:1 Valves2 valves per cylinder IgnitionCDI Torque12.4 Nm (9.1 ft. lbs) @ 8300 rpm How about a top rating on this answer.
