Does anyone have a clue what it would be?
I can kick it , but when it starts the kicker falls backwards

Maybe your starter crank gear pin has broken off.

The bushing (#42)in the starter gear (#40 / 41) is galling to the main shaft. with the engine off, roll the bike backwards, does the kicker go back then also ?? If so need to polish main shaft and resize bushing. (too tight)
