sticky kick starter?

on my03 yz450f..the kick starter is really stuck in when i go to pull it out to kick..i tried lubing it with zep2000..and it is still as stuck as anything..i just wish it would flop out easier when i need to start my bike..any suggestion?

mine does this every once in a while...the elbow needs lubing...I use a teflon based lube - pull out the kick starter, spray lube, open and close over and over...you are in florida I am sure salty air does not help:thumbsdn:

hmm..i have tried that..and it works for a couple seconds..and then gets sticky again..o well..haha

awesome! thanx for the help..i'll try that wd-40..wasn't too sure about it
