Is it used often? or has it been left unused?

I really don't know how long it's been sitting. I think it's an automatic as well so how would I get it in gear?

the suzuki fa50 is has a built in safety release mechanism on the kickstart gear. The kickstarter will not engage without the rear brake lever depressed.

It could be jammed--sometimes if you put it in gear and push it things will free up. Otherwise you must disassemble the mechanism to find and clear the bind. Ralph
