Wont start in gear.

03 XR 50. I cant remember if it has always done this but when i try and start it in gear it lurches forward. Have to put it in nuetral. Thanks for any help!

Try adjusting your clutch

You cannot start it in gear, the kicker mechanism goes through the transmission, the bike has to be in neutral to start it.

neutral only is best anyway, esp for a kid.
