It was two:

start the bike in neutral
start is actually important, it must be nice up front with no dust

See ya!

if you are starting a dead bike IT NEEDS TO BE IN NEUTRAL especially kick starting..the clutch will drag and the bike may have a problem starting.. THEN second gear for the start (unless you are geared tall)

Ive always kicked it in gear on the starts.... I would imagine if you want a good start you would have to....

this video from the start, second gear

Id much rather heel shift up when picking my feet up.. after I have started the bike in neutral... just as fast and you know your engine is free

I beg to differ.You need to learn how to start your bike in gear, and do whatever it takes to make your bike start in gear. Way to slow in neutral.

When they give the 2 minute warning I fire up, put it in gear, rev it a couple times and shut it off, and hold the clutch in until they drop the banner. Another thing you can do is rock the bike back and forth while in gear with the clutch in. You have to get the plates nice and free. It just takes practice.

The last time I started a race in neutral was as a beginner on my 390 Husky, only because it was mechanically incapable of starting in gear. But I could still get holeshots on it

My old Husky 500XC flat out refused to start in gear, plus a left side kick and a 36" seat height made for difficult dead engine starts but I still managed to be near the front of the pack at the bomb. My Cr250R & YZ125 will both start in gear with little or no effort at all, anywhere, anytime. My CRF450X is hard to start in gear. I have found that using the kick starter at the same time I hit the button will light it up much faster . Thank God the Baja races are live engine starts!

There shouldnt be any delusions! Just get out there!!



especially the USDR races - they are much more laid back. And the 650 is fine - hell Scotty was out there on the 650L last race!
