did a search with no results....

after I kick start my 01 YZ426f, I release the kick lever and it returns back to its up position it makes this wierd buzz type noise...its still works fine and I have no trouble starting the bike but i was wondering if this was normal?

Normal. Kickstart ratchet mechanism in action. Noise stops when kicker is returned to the top, right? Not sure if it's a valid concern, but I'd make an effort to let it return asap to prevent wear.
