After our last ride my partner went to start his bike to put it in the truck and the kickstarter wont work, it feels as if theres no ratchet or gears. the bike will bump start fine. Has anyone else had this concern? What am I up against as far as repairs?

The kick start isn't that complicated I would pull the cover off and find out what's going on cause it's possible there could be a chunk of metal floating around in there.

Take it apart, I had some problems, with my old two stroke habit of rolling the throttle while kicking it over. The bike would backfire, and snap the kick stop, and crack the cases.
