Welcome to the forums. Compression should be about 74 PSI on the Rincon.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

I doubt loose valves would cause low compression. If they were too tight, they might, but if they're ticking, they must be loose. I would pour a little oil down into the cylinder and do another compression test. This will tell you if the rings are the problem. If the compression goes up, it would indicate worn rings.
