SOURCE: I have changed 3 pinion
I'm assuming the gear you are talking about is the starter gear on the Jackshaft.
If your bike is kicking back on the starter, it's because of a problem in either the ignition or something. What causes this is the engine fires on "the first upstroke" before the flywheels get to moving good. Some aftermarket ignitions such as the Crane HI-4 has a setting for either electric start or kick start. When the electric start position is selected, this delays the spark plugs from firing until the engine rotates over three times. Once those flywheels are rotating like that, the engine will not kick back. But, the stock ignition unit is not set up to do this and in most bikes, it's not a problem. My '94 Wide Glide has only done it once in the ten years that I've owned it and then it do any damage.
So, one question, are you running high octane fuel? If not, your engine could be detonating, or pre-igniting the fuel. If you're running high test fuel, it could be that the ignition timing is set too high. The timing will not change and will remain at the factory setting until someone changes it. But, sometimes those factory guys have bad nights before and one may have gotten your timing set wrong. Also, check for damage to the ring gear. If the ring gear is damaged, this could be damaging the smaller jackshaft gear. The ring gear is replacable as well.

I don't know the year of your ATV but you probably have electronic ignition. I assume the cam chain has not been disturbed. Based on that, just install a new woodruff key and go riding. The timing is pre set. Please rate my answer. Thanks.
