As rojasalex said, may sound dumb, but every time my ruck wouldn't start since I got it, more times than not, it was just a fuse!!
As for the kickstart, you could take the CVT cover off, then remove the bolt holding the variator on and make sure that the small plate that goes between the washer and fan drive face is reaching the geared threads. If not you'll be making a huge mess of that axle!
Worth a try. I don't claim to be any sort of expert. Just sharing some of my experiences since I started playing with rucks! Good luck, buddy!
