56 rocker clutch

hey folks,
need some help, i just took the rocker clutch and hand shift off of my 56. when it was on i had to put the clutch pedal forward and have the bike in neutral to kick it over. i went to the mouse trap eliminator bracket and cable set up with the foot shifter, so i put in in neutral like any other bike and when i kick it it seems like the kicker is real free, not turning the motor over much. what am i missing ? is there something internally on the trans or clutch that is different with the foot clutch as compaired to a hand clutch ? its not making any sense. all help would be greatly appreiciated.

thanks for all the help
