Currently there is a company doing something similar, it's called Yamaha and they sell a WR450 that comes with an electric starter. Yeah, bad joke but that's the best recommendation I can give you.

Are you kicking correctly? May be silly question bus just sometimes happens. Here is from manual:
STARTING A COLD ENGINE
1. Inspect the coolant level.
2. Turn the fuel cock to “ON”.
3. Shift the transmission into neutral.
4. Fully open the cold starter knob.
5. Without pulling in the decompression
lever, slowly depress the kick starter until
the compression stroke is found. When
considerable resistance of the kick starter
is felt, the engine is on the compression
stroke. If the engine is on the exhaust
stroke, resistance will only be felt when
the kick starter is initially depressed, not
through the entire range of depression
(as when the engine is on the compression
stroke); therefore, depress the kick
starter a few more times.
And other moment from manual in case you don't have it:
* The carburetor on this motorcycle has a
built-in accelerator pump. Therefore,
when starting the engine, do not operate
the throttle or the spark plug will foul.
* Unlike a two-stroke engine, this engine
cannot be kick started when the throttle is
open because the kick starter may kick
back. Also, if the throttle is open the air/
fuel mixture may be too lean for the
engine to start.
* Never use the decompression lever after
the engine is started. The engine may be
damaged if you use the decompression
lever while it is running.
* Before starting the machine, perform the
checks in the pre-operation check list.

But please , just one more question: what exhaust cam with decompressor will be acceptable for WR400 ? If I could get one from WR450 it will be compatible ?
What about timing ? Should I keep standard WR400 timing or move exhaust cam some pin ahead or back ?
Thanks in advance,
