Does my 96 Suzuki GS500E sidestand have to be up for my bike to start?


The stand needs to be up to start the bike in gear unless you pull in the clutch,but you should be able to start it in neutral with the clutch in and the stand down.if You put it in gear with the clutch in and the stand down as soon as you let the clutch out it will cut out.it's a safety thing introduced by Suzuki due to an American sueing Kawasaki years ago for being able to ride the bike a bike with the stand down,he fell off and sued them for his own stupidity.

Seized clutch


Depends if you have a "wet clutch", if so it may be that the friction plates may be just stuck togeather usually if the bike has been sitting for a while. First try warming up the bike, turn off, put into second gear, then rock the bike back and forth and see if the clutch releases. If not you can try parking on a hill, put in 1st gear,hold clutch in,press starter while sitting in riding position ("jump start"), be carefull

I have a 1978 Yamaha dt 175 enduro motorcycle, got it to start and run but when you put it in gear to go it goes in reverse. what is rotation or why is this like it is?


DUDE! I totally just wrote this long ol answer to your problem ,then the computer didn't take it! Anyway, ok, Dude, just take the right side cover off, and check for damage to your clutch housing gear, the gear behind you clutch housing, and your final drive gear.....What I think happenned is that someone (while working on that bike) put your final drive gear on backwards, and it's still meshing with your clutch housing gear, but since the gear is backwards, it's pushing your bike bakwards......Not to mention though, if that is it, Man your bike aint feeling to happy inside, I'm thinkin' "man, if that bike is doing that, there's gotta be some damage somewhere".....But, I'm hoping that there isn't, so we'll pray to GOD that there isn't.....Ironically, you wont really hurt the bike too bad, AS LONG AS YOU DON'T PUT IT IN GEAR! But think of it this way, accidentally, you have one of the most unique bikes in the world.....Imagine how many people you could impress on the computer, if you could learn to ride that baby backwards dude! They would be like, "dude! how does he do that" ? how did some one put a reverse gear on a motorcycle like that"?? Man, talk about the possibilities, in circuses, or carnivals.....Anyway, if you don't want all that, I would just look at taking the nut off the final drive gear, then just flipping over your gear the other way......Please let me know what you find, I'll try to help you more if you need it....Oh yeah, and by the way, your magneto ( on the left side ) of the crankcase, and your final drive gear,( on the right side ) of your motor, is supposed to spin towards the front of your motor cycle.....IF, by any chance they are not, then you got somethin' screwy goin' on inside the transmission.....somethin's reversed there hombre'.....THANKS, GOD BLESS.....JASON!

I went over some substantial speed-bumps where the bottom struck and scratched. I had to go about 2 kms/hr. so it would not happen (seriously!). Everything was fine (stopped at a store for about 10...


Hi, it seems you have faulty clutch from the description you made concerning the grinding noise when you tried 2nd and 3rd gear which i thinks is as a result of the stuck and scratch you had on the speed bump. And if you try riding it in its present state, you will end up damaging the gear box...

Now if your engine stalls when you drop into 1st gear, with the clutch disengaged, then the clutch plates are stuck together. Normally in this case, before starting the engine, try putting the transmission in 2nd or 3rd gear (But you already have a problem doing that which is also as a result of the faulty clutch), pull the clutch in and roll the bike forward and backward a few times to free the stuck plates. Meanwhile fresh gasoline maybe all you need..

In summary, a clutch problem....

When to change a clutch


Clutch life all comes down to how you ride it, and more so how much you slip it. I've seen how alot of people ride and honestly wouldn't be suprised if they needed new clutches before they hit 10k miles... makes me cringe hearing them take off from a stop. I think to myself.... "what did that clutch ever do to you?? " LOL But yea if you're not running evergy conserving oil, and there's plenty of freeplay in the lever, then it sounds like it's clutch time. There's no set mileage interval for clutches, just depends on how each individual one is treated. On my bike I've got 113k on the original factory clutch and it's still fine... no slippage at all. My buddies Suzuki Bandit was on it's 3rd clutch by 40k or so (but that bike had other problems too). My Accord I got 321k out of the original factory clutch, and it never started slipping just broke a damper spring on the clutch disc and jammed the clutch. I've known of a woman with a brand new Hyundai that burnt the clutch out in 1000 miles (yea she didn't know how to drive manual... at all). It's all relative Sounds like you need a clutch th
