It makes no sence to release compression if your not trying to start it. The compression ratio has to be high on the bike to run diesel. If it had a kick start then you would put pressure not try and kick hard but kick starter easy till it stopped on compression stroke. Then release pressure and kick it maybe 1/4 kick till it got past TDC then close compression release and do a hard full kick. Myself I am thinking for electric start release compression and hit the starter then close the compression release.
    The compression release is on the left handlebar and is marked as a choke because the choke lever on a gas powered bike is used for the compression release. The M1030M1 is electric start only. The compression release is to relieve any existing compression when the piston starts its journey up when the starter is engaged. It allows the engine to spin faster when starting.

    Existing pressure? I have changed a lot of spark plugs, injectors and or glow plugs and never found them to be under pressure. You really believe a motor that has sat for a days still has compression. Lets say it does. You open up the compression release and release the compression and close the it. Now as soon as the piston keeps going up the compression is built up again before TDC. Google this question and I believe you will find the old timers talking about it and if its has a pony motor or started by hand you get the crank spinning first then you close the compression release. You release the compression and spin the motor over then close compression release is what I have found and what I did to start the little diesel on the barge. Makes it easer to start and easer on the starter load plus could bring up some oil pressure is my .02 and with my little barge motor I could have never spun it over without releasing compression.
