Has he changed to a different brand of engine oil immediately before this symptom appeared? If yes, change back again

Sounds like the ratchet wheel is failing to cam back away from the kick starter gear. Look for a broken lug on the ratchet wheel, broken sring, disengaged snap rings, splines twisted, stuff like that.
