99 wr400-Extremely Hard to Kick!!

What is causing this thing to be so hard to kick? Is it essential to install the hot cam exhaust on these things???

The way to start the bike is:
Kick down to where it won't go anymore (the point where your foot breaks in half - yes - it's supposed to do that in stock form)
Now look by your left hand, you got this little lever right there - no, not the clutch - smaller - and probably black, you probably think it's a hot start lever.....
Well, now that the kicker has stopped, pull this little lever and I like to move the kicker another inch or so - just a little. Release the lever, bring the kicker up and kick it through nice and solid and fast just once (don't blip the throttle, matter of fact - don't even put your hand on the throttle - rest it on the tank).
A properly set up bike will come to life immediately.
