Every time I try to start my Foreman in gear and take off it blubbers. It will be fine if I shift it back to N then upshift or reverse from there. Any ideas?

Start it in neutral then upshift or reverse from there. No problems

I didn't know it would start in gear.

It's the front brake lever, mine does the same thing. When you pull back on the front lever it triggers a switch which allows you to start in gear. There is a rev limiter built into that switch that is a safety feature. Whenever you crank it in gear and it starts sputtering just take you finger and push the brake lever foward. The lever doesn't go back all the way when you let off and it still has that switch triggered.

There's two switches there, one for the brake lights and the other is your start in gear switch, it's probably sticking. Make sure your connections to the switch are clean also.
