XR400 Kickstart, grinding noise
Alright, so my kickstarter has always just sounded clear when it's been kicked until one day it started making this grinding, stripping noise. I can also hear it when i kill the engine, for a split second at the end. Any ideas on what's causing this?

Here is a video of the sound
