Moving while clutch is pulled!

Recommended Posts

I washed my bike a while back and after that I could never get it started. Changed spark plug and no help, have good spark though. The other problem I am seeing is that if I put it in 1st, pull the clutch in, and attempt to start it the bike will actually try to move forward and make a not so pleasant cranking sound. Once again this didn't happen until after I washed it and it wouldn't start. Been like this for a while and haven't had a chance to fix it but ready to get crackin. Any ideas?

A smidgen of drag yes, not like he is describing though. I well adjusted bike will not lurch forward in first if you thumb the starter with the clutch pulled in...
