I have recently had the same problem with the aluminium kickstarter arm wearing on the steel node, I had a brass bush machined up, bored out the kickstart arm and inserted the brass bush. Job done.

Either that or buy a new one.

Good luck.

Did it suddenly just flop forward hitting the pipe now when it's resting in the up position? It's really common on that motor to break the metal stop plate on the kick start assembly typically it just cracks and allows the kick starter to rotate to far forward.

I had it happen on my '02 after owning it for 9 months from new!! Thats when I found out it was a common issue with the bike typically it breaks if you kick the kick starter into the peg all the time it's an easy part to swap only like $40 - 50 for a new one.
