I've read about this problem before...it's usually due to a failed diode, that is used to prevent starting when not in neutral or clutch pulled in. I believe there are two diodes that operate this circuit, and if one fails, it causes the symptoms you're describing.

I don't know where they are on the 1200...on the 1100 they are underneath the false tank, on the left side. Have a look at the 1200 service manual, and it should tell you where to find them.
