Why does my 06 450 not start in gear? If I shift it into neutral it will start 1st or 2nd kick. I know there are more parts turning while in gear with the clutch pulled in, thus more resistance but still looks like it should start if I just kick it harder. The ignition timing is somewhat different while in neutral. Is this the reason it won't start? Gets a little agravating when I screw up a hill climb and have to find neutral while trying to keep the bike from moving.
