It won't start because it's in first gear. The only way you can start it in first gear is to pull the clutch in.

In what way won't it go into neutral? Is it too stiff? Does it click but the light won't come on? Does the shifter feel empty?

if your still having problem with the gears try putting a elastic band on the clutch lever so its pulled in and leave it for about 30 minutes,as for the non starting i have done it many of times i have hit the kill switch maybe worth looking at

thats what ive been doing when starting it up when it is in 1st gear..pulling the clutch in..i knew that..and i know when in neutral u dont have to pull in the clutch when starting..ive looked it over and the kill swtich is on the ready to start position, and still no response, i've tried the choke and giving it some throttle but no response at all, not even a clicking noise or anykind of noise...with the neutral, i shift up from first like always to go to neutral but it goes to 2nd gear instead, and shift up again into 3rd gear..so i get it back to first gear and try to get it in neutral again and the same thing happens..its in 2nd gear..it does click but no light showing its in neutral..i tried rolling it without the clutch in to see if it was in neutral but it won't roll so i just pulled in the clutch to roll it...but u know its just aggravating buying something and you haven't got a chance to ride it alot and it messes up on u and out comes more money that you don't have to fix it

Off the wall, but is your kickstand up or down? Mine will not start with the kickstand down. Couple other friends thier bikes will.

make sure the battery post are tight & the battery is good and charged, also when you try startin the bike it should start with the kickstand down in neutral and with it in 1st gear with the kickstand up

clutch switch?? on the bottom side of the clutch lever.
Side stand switch? down on the sidestand.
GP shifting?? is it 1 up and 5 down, or 1 down and 5 up

You should be able to find nuetral, even if the light does not come on. (burnt out light or the switch itself for the nuetral sender bad??)

try having your frind push you and start it like that. and then once it warms up the neutral will be easier to find. also, there's a terminal that connects to the left side of the gear box (on the bottom) thats the neutral switch. try taking that off and grounding it (trick it into thinking its in neutral). dont forget to pull the clutch in when you start it, cause you will be running after that bike lol. and like others said, check battery terminals. if the battery is somewhat dead or there is a weak contact on the terminal the bike wont turn over (the light will still be on).

My 05' 636 sometimes clunks going into 2nd and then the next 5 gear changes are as smooth as you like, strange!

I had simular problems when i bought mine. I imagine bad oil type, wrong oil type, bike not being ridedn too often, bad riding habbits (or even worse bad shifting habbits) can probably do all of those problems. My 2 cents: change the oil to something suitable to your kind of weather. Ride the bike, and sooner or later you'll get used to the bike, while the bike gets used to you
