04 crf50 shifting hard

ok so my stock 50 is shifting really hard into first and second. just going from neutral to first it wants to wheelie with no gas given... and second i basically have to lean forward for it not to 12 o clock. i want my 6 yr old to learn but not with it shifting this hard... i know a little mechanically but far from a pro... any help would be appriciated.

Don't power shift it... let off the gas and shift. Just like big bike. Unless u actually want to bring it up like I do most of the time.

isn't the clutch part of the shifter setup? on my old ct-70 as long as you had pressure up or down on the shifter it was a neutral, if that is the case just keep pressure until the revs drop and then release, report back

Also double check the carb settings if your idle is really high. The auto clutch actuates with throttle. If the idle is up there it will seem just like grabbing throttle to the clutch making the low gear shifts pop in really hard.

Yes there is a clutch. When you depress the shift lever, inside the case a cam releases the clutch, then it shifts into gear and when you release pressure on the shift lever the clutch re-engages.

Yes that's how it works.

This is also correct. It's pretty simple, I'm sure you could google the insructions.

It's not the same as an auto clutch and it's not actuated by throttle. As long as you hold pressure on the shifter the clutch will be disengaged, assuming it's adjusted correctly, no matter what you do with the throttle.
Although a high idle setting will make it seem to shift hard from neutral to first. The clutch engages pretty suddenly on these things so higher rpm's will make it jerk when it engages.

Here's a "How-To" vid.
He is wrong when he refers to it being a centrifugal clutch but otherwise it seems like his advice is ok... for a goober
