See if you can push the bike with it in gear and the clutch lever pulled in. If the clutch is stuck, push start the bike, jump on, get to about 10 mph, pull in the clutch lever and hit the rear brake hard. This will usually break a stuck clutch loose.
You need to put it into neutral in order to start it or pull the clutch and hold it down until started. I would suggest putting it into neutral. Double check that you have it in neutral by trying to push the bike without holding down the clutch when you think you have it in neutral. If the bike rolls easily, then you know its in neutral. If it won't push or seems hard to get it to roll forward then you know its still in gear. Once you have it in neutral (for sure), hold the clutch down and start the bike.
Othen than that, all you have to do is make sure its turned on and it should start. Some bikes use a key to turn it on, others have a throttle control switch. We had Suzuki Quad racers which were 2 stroke - and are a little different.
you can ride the cluthch on a bike un like a car you wont hurt it its oil lubricated constantly, sitting on the bike pull the clutch in with your left hand and click the left foot lever down in to 1st, then learn how to click it back up 1 half movement in to neutral. the neutral light will come on sfter the bike enters neutral. in first gear give the throttle on the right hand a squeeze and pull the clutch in with your left hand put foot gear selector down in to 1 st and begin to release clutch slowly. hold on as bike will engage may be jerky balance yourself! when you get moving stop! by pulling the clutch in and the hand brake as you close the throttle to stop! practice your take off many times some where safe! when you get your balance in 1st gear pick up speed and begin shifting the foot gear selector up in to 2nd gear and practice closing the throttle and breaking to a safe stop. gears are generslly 1st down 1 click 2345 and6th all up from there and neutral is 1 half a click up from 1st between 2nd gear. And dont put it in gear with the kick stand down t may stall on you
The reason why the bike wouldn't start while in gear and the clutch depressed is so it wouldn't start and jump ahead if the clutch was released. This is usually called popping the clutch without in gear without throttle.........Hope this helps.
the first i always check when a bike doing what your talking about is safety switchs side stand, clutch and neutral. If any are not working the bike won't start, lets say as example bike is in gear side stand is up clutch pulled in but the but won't start, if the clutch switch is broke or worn the the bike thinks that you want to start it in gear without the clutch and it won't even turn over. The other thing to check is you kill switch, sometimes you'll get dirt and it can hold moisture, cause rust
