Bike has been sitting for a couple of months, went ridding today and I had to really rev the engine to get going in first gear. Seems to pull fine in all the other gears. I could slow down in fifth gear and give gas and bike would pull fine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

That does not sound like a typical clutch failure. Next time start out in first but do not exceed 1,500 RPM as you let the clutch out until it is fully engaged. Then add throttle. If you spin her up beyond 2,000+ rpm she will slip for a while if you start her out slipping.
