Default Re: Bike runs good once started, but pedaling is difficult

Sounds like cable stretch to me. The clutch cable can, over time stretch requiring readjustment of the cable tension at the engine clutch lever. You'll want to shoot for about an 1/8" play at the lever, no more than that. The cable should be snug but not tight. If you've ruled this out get back to us.
