Does the bike have a sidestand switch that cuts the power if the stand is left down? If it does, disconnect it and temporarily join the ends together and try starting....

Sounds like a slightly bent shift fork. The slider gear isn't quite engaging into 2nd. If the bend gets worse then you won't get into first and the pedal will get real stiff in those gears. The repair is best done in the shop.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Well. I'm a motorcycle mechanic and my 2004 RMZ 250 recently did the same thing, The Shift forks inside my transmission actually bent and were not moving the gears as far as they needed to go and eventually got to where it quit shifting all together, recently also repaired a CR 125 That wouldn't shift at all and it was the shaft the shift forks go on was bent and hung the shift forks. Sounds like your shift forks are bent to me though.

This is one of those issues that is really tricky to diagnose over the net but would likely take a few minutes to diagnose in person.
When it does drop into gear, does it jump or stall? Will it idle in gear, stopped with the clutch pulled in?
My initial thought is that the clutch is not being fully released (the plates are still in firm contact with eachother).
More than likely, the resolution is a fairly simple adjustment.
