mine always starts way better in gear for whatever reason i dont know! It idles better in gear too! but I would still lean toward valves. especially if you've got some hard miles on it.

My 07 had an attitude starting, put in new Iridium plugs and then run some carb cleaner through it and its like a new machine again, total cost under 40$

then I snorkelled it, bought new front box, new gun scabbord, and piaaa bulbs
total cost, just under 500$
