Default Re: How do YOU go from a standstill?

When I drove an ht bike, I always pedaled before letting the clutch out. If I didn't, my engine would stall (44t rear sprocket, 280lb rider). But I'm in the process of building a bike with a 98cc Lifan, and I'm not yet sure if this bike will have the necessary torque to pull me from a dead stop. Even if it does, I may still give a bit of a pedal before giving it gas, because I know that will be less hard on the clutch.
