Xr250 won't kick start(seizes up), take valve cover off and no problems?

I have a 1992 xr250 that made a clicking noise and then would not kick start. Like the motor was locked up. I thought it was broke timing change so I take valve cover off and that's not it. And the motor is no longer seized everything seems to be working fine. So I put valve cover back on and only put the middle bolt in and kick start is seized back up... Anyone know what could be causing this problem???

I had that happen to me with a xr80 the timing chain skipped teeth, also had it happen with a xr200 when the decompression cam was misaligned, or maybe it's in the transmission..idk

Your Decompression system might be broken up making it harder to kick over...
