yz 80 wont kick start but will pop start

i have a 1984 yz 80 that will not kick start but will start by "pop" or "bump" starting it. any ideas as to why this is happening or how to fix it??

i need help. kicking the kick starter will not start it. only pop starting itbwill start it

Probably low compression

the compression is okay but would it be the coil being bad?

no thats low compression, whats are the numbers. a coil being bad wouldn't do that, a coil going bad would either run like poop under load or not work at all.

I had a bike that would do the same thing. Mine ended up needing a top end.
