why do i have so much compression?

I have so much compression i have to stand on stand and try to kick it. sometimes its to much that i cant move the kickstarter. i have had this bike for a year and has never been this hard to kick. I just replaced the timing chain could this have anything to do with it.? Help i want to ride again.

I would double check the cam timing.

I would also check the decompression mechanism.

Thanks for the advice. I figured it out. the bolt that holds the decrompression mechanism was loose so i turned the emotor and tightend the bolt and it fired right up. thanks again for the help.
