Kick starter noise after bike is running

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I inherited a yz400f. Been riding it for a while, but I went to start it one day and kicked from the very top without really putting pressure on the  Kickstarter. It made a funny noise, and now when I start her up, she makes a noise like I'm holding the Kickstarter down...I'm going to take the whole assembly apart but what do you guys think I should look for? Maybe something with the pawl gear?

The pawl plate has an extension that's supposed to catch a plate on the crankcase when the lever returns to the top. The extension or the catch plate is at fault.
