Why when I am riding my motorcycle and I pull the Clutch to gear down my motorcycle it cut off and take long to start back.


Are you saying that when you put the bike into gear to pull away from standing, the engine cuts out? If so, then check your side stand switch. It is there to cut the engine out if you try to ride off with your stand down. Your stand may be up but the switch may be telling the engine it is down.

Bike cutting out


Do you have the kickstand up when you put it in gear? Many bikes have a lockout on the side stand to prevent you riding away with the stand down. Kills the engine instantly when placed in gear with the stand down.

The bike will have a cut out switch for the side stand. IE if the side stand is down and you try to put the bike in gear it will either cut the engine or not let you start if at all.

Make sure the bike is in neutral and try again.

Self start not working


Most, if not all bikes have a safety device installed which prevents the engine from being started when in gear. There is generally another which cuts the engine dead if the side stand is put down when the bike is in gear.
Hope this helps.

Gear problems


now you would have to make sure your clutch is not faulty as if the bike slightly jump while putting it in first gear and cuts off , you most probably have a clutch problem .
this is what you have to try first :
start the bike on while depressing the clutch while in gear and see what happens .
if the bike keeps on running , tension the clutch .
if the bike stall , your clutch could be faulty or your oil could be too ,thick and needs changing .
try this first and let me know how you go

Bike runs in neutral but cuts out when a gear is selected.


Your sidestand switch kills the engine if the bike is put in gear with the sidestand down. If your stand is up and this is happening either the switch is broken or out of position. If it is broken you can twist the wires together until you can replace the switch. If it is just bent out of position you can bend it back carefully.

Bike shuts off when in gear


hello and welcome
it seems that you may have a faulty side stand switch. the side stand needs to be in the up position before the bike can be started off in gear. but if not the side stand contains a saftety switch that shuts the bike off when put into gear. to verify this you can check for spark when the bike is being turned over in gear with the clutch held in.
there should be two wires associated with this switch. a green, and green with white. so when the stand is up these two wires are connected, and the switch can be tested as such. thank you.
