depends what engine, I've found low compression engines like the lifan 125 can kick from anywhere and it'll start and never kicks back, you don't even have to kick hard. anything 140 and above you have to kick it properly.

Heres a link that I found pretty helpful. it explains why you need to get it to TDC and also a bit about decompression units.
2 Wheels • View topic - How to find TDC using a kickstart?
In summary what Ive learnt is:
1.To kick-start a bike properly you must first find TDC.
2.Slowly kick over the bike to find TDC, it's when the kickstart gets the hardest to push.... simple enough so far
3.At this point you must slowly push down and get the kicker to one click past TDC.
4. The kicker can then be released and you can start the bike with one kick.
5. If it doesnt start proerly the first time... repeat the process as many times as neccessary.
also use the choke when the engine is cold
anyone feel free to add to or correct what Ive said
