how old is your plug? try cleaning and regapping it or replacing it at any rate make sure it is gapped correctly also make sure there is no rust dust or debris is on flywheel or coil also the flywheel keyway does more than hold the flywheel in place it servs as a timing pin and sometimes the slightest wear on it can cause the machine to start hard but otherwise run great good luck hope you find the problem.

Forget the safety switches for now.The first thing I would check would be the fuse. It will be located on the battery side of the solenoid. Follow your positive battery cable to the solenoid. There will be a small red wire coming off of that post with an inline fuse. If the fuse is good, check your solenoid. There are two wires plugged into spade terminals at the bottom of the solenoid. Unplug the one that is insulated, the other one is a ground. Hook a test light from that wire to ground. When you turn the key to start (with the brake pedal held down), it should light. If it lights, your solenoid is bad. If not, then you can start looking at switches. Probably will be one of the two. Hope this helps. Dwain

Try loosening the belt tension to the transmission a little bit. Some of these are just stiff and you have to slip the clutch a little to rock them into gear.
