2006 yz450f kick starter rattle

My 06' yz450f has a loud vibration/rattle at the kick starter. At first I thought it was just resting on the pipe and causing the noise but it almost seems to be slightly engaging??? Any advice or have you experienced the same issue? How to fix? Thanks for any help.

The starter may not be being cammed out of engagement completely. There's an extension on the ratchet that is supposed to catch a part of the crankcase as it returns to the top and pull the ratchet away form the gear. You'll have to have a look and see why this is not happening.
