Compression sounds right on. Does it run any different with choke on or off? Did you premix the first tank of gas? Smoking sounds like maybe too much oil (if its excessive). Also, what does the plug look like if you can keep it running for a few minutes.

What color is the smoke? What does it smell like? What does the spark plug look like. You could be leaking oil into the crankcase because of an improperly installed crank seal, or a leak between the case halves. Or you could be leaking water into the cylinder through the head gasket or cylinder base gasket. Make sure all your bolts and nuts are properly torqued. You could just be getting too much oil from the oil injection. Also, check your timing and flywheel key. Also, I'm not exactly sure what the compression should be, but 110 seems a little low for a fresh piston and bore, but it still shouldn't run poorly. Did you do the compression test when the motor was warm or cold?

Black smoke usually means you are running way too rich, the fact that you say it dies when you choke it, supports that idea. You may be jetted way too rich, or you may have a clogged air cleaner. Also, I am pretty sure that machine has an oil injection system for the 2-stroke mix. Unless that system has been properly bypassed, you should not be running a pre-mix, just add oil to the oil tank and gas to the gas tank.

      i know this isnt an atv but same type of thing.  I have a riding mower im fixing and selling for my aunt and it has a dead battery.  i jumped it off my atv and when i turn the key nothing at all happens.  i tried jumping the relay still nothing.  this is with the seat down.  you wouldnt think this mower would have issues as its a top-of-the-line brand and almost brand new (aunt found it for a good price, still got tits on tires, just sat for a couple months in a mechanic shop

      I am having an issue where it sounds like the gears are slipping if I hit the throttle really hard and also after letting off when the engine brake is applied. Also, the drive train that goes to the front also rides again the gear shift box. I will attach pictures and a video here shortly.
      Thanks in advance!

      Trying to change front wheel bearings. I removed the cotter pin and castle nut. Hub won't budge. Is there an additional retaining clip? Seems to be one of those push on type that barbs on the thread of the spindle. How do I remove it?
