Starter Switch

Hi

I was riding a Suzuki Van Van 125cc bike today.  Surprisingly to me the engine wouldn't start up when the bike was in neutral. 

When I was learning on other 125s we always used to start the bikes up in neutral, and then click into gear when we were ready.

Does anyone know if this is normal?

Thanks

Suzukis

need the clutch pulling in. Has several advantages but is annoying.

Thankyou for the quick replies.

No I didn't pull the clutch in :-D, I've never ridden a bike where you have to do that for Neutral before.  I suppose it's a good precaution!

So clutch in, start her up in neutral, release clutch....OK I'll remember that.  Thanks for the heads up!
