My 400ex can start in gear stock as long as you hold in clutch. I put an after market clutch pearch on it and had to conect the wires. It will start in gear now with out clutch. My buddy hit the garage wall with it one day. Not safe but works for me.

You will have to cross the wires on the handlebars inorder for it to start in any gear.

My Rincon will start in foreword or reverse with the front brake pulled in, and so does my dads 420 Rancher. So I guess all the newer honda utilities do. Not sure on the recon or 250ex though.

It will start in gear if the clutch swith is functioning. If the switch is bad (or missing) and you want to fix it CHEAP, connect the green to the yellow/green that goes to the clutch switch.
