Stuck Kickstarter

My name is Jimmy, and I just purchased a late 80's Honda Fourtrax 300cc 4x2. It was a price I couldn't pass up.

The kickstarter is stuck, and upon getting it home, there is very little oil in the crankcase. I plan on filling it up, and seeing of it will at least turn over.

Is there any special precautions I should take? I'm not new to ATV's but this is my first Honda. I have never had one in this condition before.

Even if I had to rebuild the motor, I would be ahead of the game, as the ATV is in pretty decent shape, and it will be a backup for my business. (I'm a land surveyor).

Thanks for any advice,

Gentleman on the same discussion with an added issue kick start seems stuck but I can turn the engine only so far forward and so far back and on occasion it will spin free acouple rounds then stop and do the same thing again always stopping with the piston about a half inch from TDC
