Kickstart easy to press down but sometimes not turning the engine is usually breakage of the thin wide spring behind the kickstart ratchet pinion. You reach it by removing the gearbox outer cover with both pedals still on it, removing the nut on the mainshaft (check that it was tight) and pulling off the outer ratchet piece, then the ratchet pinion.
When removing the cover, keep a little downward pressure on the kickstart and try to keep the big clock spring in place.
