Okay... I finally got my motor put back in the bike and im having a hell of a time getting it kicked over. This isn't my first rodeo and i know how to start the bike but when i try to slam the kick starter down to start it, the levar just stops. I kept trying it and it would eventually fire up and idle like shit and die and i'd be starting all over again. Any thoughts on why it would stop like that?

Sounds like maybe your cam timing is off. I would pull the cover back off and double check everything to avoid damage.

found the problem! It wasn't idling so i messed with the idle screw turning it inwards. Well it opened up the throttle enough to where the kick starter would kick back. I just backed the screw back out and it works now. I have another problem but thats for another thread.
