this is not my bike but my friends bike. he turned off the bike for a minute went to start it again and it started but then he heard the "ticking" noise like when the kick starter is down while the bike is running. he looks down and its only halfway up. so he turns if off right way. we push it back and take off the kicker because we thought it just wasn't swinging back. grease that and it works fine but still gets stuck. its not the kick start lever because we took it right off and we saw the little shaft vibrating back and forth. It seems that a spring or gear was moved on the inside. it will start and run perfect besides the kick starter not going all the way up. he will be taking it to the shop to get fixed this week, but does anyone know what could be wrong? Thanks!
