You need a manual clutch for that very much like how a china 2 stroke would start.
Not true! I have a Bike Bug Auto that has a set up where you pedal it to start, and as soon as it fires up, it unlocks and goes into "centrifugal clutch mode". Sorta like thye Honda automatic CT's you could bump start them, but as soon as they started if you didn't add throttle would just sit and idle.

The clutch could be activated by moving the throttle in the same way the Honda's shifter operates the clutch.
