Yeah, 2nd usually. Try the using the manual decomp technique. Makes bump starting easier than just dumping the clutch, especially if you can't get much speed up.

Another method; forget the clutch. Pull in the comression release and click it into second gear, when the engine is turning over let go of the compression release. You may need to drop your butt on the seat when you drop the compression release to prevent rear wheel lock up.

The compression release will make it easier to push in gear cause its getting less compression.
