Default Honda SL 175, sprocket constantly in motion

1970 Honda SL 175

Have rebuilt the engine and reassembled. The sprocket (that drives the chain) turns when you operate the kickstart shaft...I have another 175 motor, and when operating the kickstart shaft on that motor, the sprocket does not turn. This makes sense...if the sprocket rotates when kickstarting the bike, then the bike would roll.

I assume that the bike is in neutral when the gear selector wheel is on the high point of the lower cog on the gear selector wheel. In this position, the neutral indicator light is also aligned with it's wire.

I have even another motor, this one junk, which is disassembled, and I have stared at the transmission and kickstart shaft of both motors for endless hours spinning the gears and trying to figure out in which configuration they would need to be in order to prevent the sprocket from spinning, and have come up with absolutely nothing.

What could possibly be misaligned???

Thanks.
