Are you well-balanced on your back? If not, you're probably using your kick to keep you balanced, which could slow you down.

A simple test of backstroke balance is to do full stroke backstroke and then glide in the back "skate" position without moving your arms or legs. If you stay horizontal and glide for some distance, you're balanced.
