Default xl125 clutch does not engage

I have a 1978 XL125 that is in great condition. It spends most of the time in my garage but occasionally either I or one of my sons will run it for a while to keep everything running. Here lately when you go to start it the clutch does not engage when you pull in on the lever. After rocking the bike back and forth rather aggressively at times, it works again. You can drive it and no problems. Can anyone tell me what the problem may be - it just started doing this.
Thanks

"Here lately when you go to start it the clutch does not engage when you pull in on the lever."

It is supposed to disengage when you pull the lever. Maybe you have it hooked up backwards.

Time to open the case and inspect the clutch. The bike's 32 years old.
