Auto decompression issues

I've been noticing for a while now that from time to time when I try to start my bike that something hangs.... Seems like to me like it's the decompression lever getting stuck or something b/c it sticks not only when using the starter but also when I try kicking it. I'm not sure if this is a known issue or even if its the ADL for all I know something in the starter could be causing the issue. If anyone has any idea of what could be causing this, please pipe up, thanks.

It happens when the engine stops on the compression stroke. It's normal though kind of annoying when it happens. I usually just rock the bike a bit to move it past tdc.
