So I have the mechanism put together correctly.
But every time I put the cases back together, which has been twice now. I can’t  turn the kickstart over by hand. On my cb550 I can. So it doesn’t seem right to me. It feels like it locks up. But if I put a ratchet on the crank then I can turn the entire engine over no problem. Maybe a gear just isn’t meshing when it comes together? Is this normal ?

Maybe the bike is in gear... ? Would that make sense

The way the kick-start mechanism works is designed tio turn transmission. It should still turn over but will turn output sprocke if in geart. Have you removed spark plugs? I don't think it's possible to turn it over by hand with motor on bench with plugs in. If you have clutch plates removed you should see centre hub turn without any problem though

I haven't actually looked at it yet. But do I need to remove the generator rotor before I can take the starter off, or can it come out without take that apart?
I try to study up on the manual pretty well before heading home from work but it isn't to clear on this.

Also, there is a wire coming from where the neutral switch is connected. As I don't have a neutral indicator, is this wire necessary? Can I just remove it

You can leave rotor in place but you will have starter reduction and one way clutch still in place. You have to remove cover so you can get small sprocket and chain out. It's better if you remove rotor and then 3 #3 scres to remove starter clutch.  http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=11736.0 look at reply #10 for pic of all the parts that get removed. With a smaller battery you have a substantial weight saving (around 13lbs)

Well im not trying to eliminate the starter, just removing it for rebuild since I concluded the starter wasn't working. But thank you, that answered the question.

You still need to remove cover so you can get small sprocket back onto starter splines

Does anyone know what type of screw/thread/length connects the starter to the engine case? The two screws that go in the two left holes in this photo. Not the two really long ones.

M6 x 25, not sure about the pitch, but probably 1.25?

When in doubt, check the parts fiche.
