As far as getting one "solid" kick usually followed by a couple strokes without much resistance, it sounds to me like the auto-decompression feature on your exhaust cam is doing it's job properly.
I'd recommend changing or at least cleaning your spark plug & make sure that all unburnt fuel is evacuated from the cylinder & exhaust.
Try the following method next time you go to start the bike...
1. Turn fuel on.
2. If bike has had fuel off & float bowl drained or run dry twist throttle to full open & back closed two times to prime the carb.
3. Turn choke on. (sometimes during hot temps using the hot-start lever can help, even when the bike is cold)
4. Kick or use e-start without moving throttle.
