No

But it will affect how well it idles and reduce your torque due to a lack of back pressure.

Low compression cylinder


Low compression is a sign of a worn engine, head gasket, broken piston compression rings or a valve burnt or sticking, it needs a serious looking at for other faults, (smoking, lack of power, over heating, popping in exhaust or inlet) Possibly a full engine strip down, Good Luck.

Kawasaki gpz 750 won't start and only makes a


hey bud, i know this might be a bit late but sounds like the starter chain tensioner has failed and the gears have vbeen stripped. dont try to start thebike. take the clutch casing off, and that chain and sprocket assembly infront of u is the offending part. google a guy called andy bennett for a manual chain tensioner. replace thes parts with zzr1100 parts as they are stronger. once youve researched and done all that. take the sump off and give it a bloody good clean. then re-assemble and away u go. u can do all this without taking the engine out the chassis. exhaust off, oil cooler off, radiator off. hope this helps. feel free to cantact me. kiltednutter (facebook)

Well, the first thing to check is compression.
If the valves are miss-timed that will affect compression.
If the gasket is not seated correctly, that will affect compression.

So compression can tell you a lot.

My first suspicion would be valve timing.
You could possibly have damaged the spark plug wire

Try a little starting fluid. If it starts easily with starting fluid, then the problem is probably associated with the carburetor. (If it has a vacuum-opened fuel petcock, there could be a small hole in that vacuum line, for instance.)

Yes it is low compression and can cause problems,may be a valve problem, judging by the sound, check the clearances,
really tight , burnt valve
really loose, stuck valve
No gaskets can cause that, but would generally take quite a few kilometeres.

White smoke drivers side exhaust


Dense white smoke usually means coolant is getting into the cylinders -- usually a head gasket. You're fortunate if you have dual exhausts and are only getting the white smoke from driver's side. You know which head gasket to check/change. Unless the leak is minor, you can usually determine which cylinders are affected by doing a compression check.
