SOURCE: kickstart problem
Your bike has an automatic de-compression lever that helps when starting. This mechanism will make it feel like the bike has low compression. If it is maladjusted, it may be causing the problem
check here for adjustment procedures to be sure that it is set up correctly.
Other than that, low compression pretty much means top end rebuild.

Pull off the cylinder head. Look in the bore. Can you see seize marks on the cylinder? Nine chances out of ten you are going to have to remove the cylinder anyway, so go ahead and do it now. Did the piston seize up? Remove the left side cover. Rotate the flywheel. Crankshaft free to move now?
If not, drain the oil and look at it. Any metal shavings, cork or bits of ground metal in it? Remove the left side cover. Look at the kick start gear. Is it "locked up" in the clutch hub? Remove the clutch hub. Will the crankshaft turn freely now? Put the bike on blocks and turn the rear wheel. Will it turn? While the wheel is turning, can you shift into neutral? When in neutral, can you hold the clutch shaft still while the wheel turns? Any funny noises while the wheel turns?
The piston may have seized the engine. The kick start mechanism or a bent shift fork may have locked up the engine. Gremlins may have done it. Something did, so let's find out what.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Check your 2 stroke oil reservoir, got a feeling it's bone dry. If so your cylinder is scored and will need some machining, new piston and rings....Good luck to you friend...Tim

It does sound like the engine has locked up, sorry.If you pull in the clutch does the rear wheel turn? If it does that means the engine has seized.

SOURCE: my kx100 kickstart won't work
have a look at the clutch cable there may be far to much slack on it so your not fully disengaging the clutch thats why the bike pulls forwards
