[COLOR="Green"]take your kicker apart and clean everything
See the little spring? Go to the home depot and get a matching spring in the specialty parts draws. Get one just little longer
Grease it up and put it back together
If that doesnt work I may have a kicker for that bike somewhere[/COLOR]

Once the aluminum kick lever is badly worn there is little you can do for a permanent repair. My advice is to buy a new kick starter and save the worn one for a spare.

Thanks for the help everybody, took the kick start to bits replaced spring and bearing, cleaned it all up and is now working much better. Thanks everybody Jez...... In the UK a new kickstart is £172 inc vat. Bearing £0.11p and spring £ 0.74p good cheap fix
