kickstarter not clicking to tank

04 250

My kick starter was binding sometimes and I could not get it from tank position to kick poition without excessive force. So I decided to take it a part and clean and grease the inside of the kickstarter and starter shaft. Now no excessive force is needed, but the kick starter will not make a clicking noise or lock against the tank. Any suggestions, when I ride it now likes to make its way from the tank and get in the way.

I have already removed the kickstart again and wiped away any grease I put on.

I believe the ball in the kick boss is maybe causing the problem. I think that is what locks it in place against the tank I could be wrong though.
