Kickstand is up, stalls when clutch let out like kickstand is down

After starting the bike and putting the kickstand up, I put it in gear, and start letting out the clutch, the bike shuts down like the kickstand is still down, after a few times of puttiing the kickstand up and down it runs fine, sometimes after shifting into 2nd and 3rd gear it tries to die out like I've put the kickstand down...Most of the time I don't have this problem, I would like to find the wire and ground it or cut it...

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: started bike, pulled clutch lever,

The clutch lever should have some tension, so could be a problem with the hydraulic actuator stuck, or a failure of the clutch. try bleeding the clutch, or pull the clutch cover off and see if the pressure plate moves

Starts in neutral w/ kickstand up, dies when put in gear. NOT Kickstand Switch


it sounds like the clutch is dragging,either it is not adjusted properly or the clutch friction or metal plates are warped and acting like wave washers.you should have about 2mm of free play at the end of the clutch lever when its not being pulled in.also too thick an oil in the engine in it like 20/50 it should be using 10w 40 semi synthetic oil.does it try to pull forwards with the clutch in slightly when you put it in gear ?

My bike starts and runs fine until you put it in gear and let the clutch out then it dies...pull the clutch back in and runs again..is this the neutral safety switch.


You made the switch that turns on and off when your kickstand is down and the look on a bike you have just start your bike to kickstand down and let the clutch out see if it does the same thing you're describing iclean your kickstand this should be like a little pen the part that you push in to make the point, now could be alterity spray that with Goncourt degreaser kickstand

When i put my 1987 Yamaha Virago in gear, it dies


Yamaha motorcycles of this vintage often have issues with their kickstand switch. This switch can be disabled by clipping the two wires that go into the switch and wiring them together--the kickstand switch is normally closed (letting current flow) when the stand is up; the switch is open when the kickstand is down.
This is more afield than your electrical concerns, but if the clutch plates have bonded together, the bike will stall when you put the bike into gear. The bike will start and idle fine, but basically, you don't have a working clutch, so the bike will stall out when you dump it into gear while at a standstill. You can test for this by starting the bike and having someone push the bike to get up to a little speed, then trying to shift into 2nd gear. If the bike lurches forward before stalling or keeps running, you have a clutch, not an electrical issue.
Folks sometimes get lucky, and working the clutch plates a few times will free up the sticking plates. I have had this problem with a mid-1970s vintage Honda that I don't ride very often. Eventually, the clutch plates free up and the bike is good to ride again.
Good luck!

My 2000 suzuki750 will not start without a jump. i charge the battery several times. when i put the bike in gear it shuts off then i have to jump it again to start. the cycle continue all over. can you...


Sounds like the battery has lost its capacity, also if you have the kickstand down when you put it into gear the engine will shut off. Try this, put jumper cables on the battery, hook it up to a car that is running, start the bike, put the kickstand up while holding the bike up and holding the clutch in, put it in gear. If it continues to run, disconnect the cables and see if it stalls. If it does, you need a new battery! Please rate this as helpful if it was. And write back a testimonial and let me know how you made out. Thanks Bob.

My '94 Kawasaki Vulcan will not start with the clutch engaged. It will start in neutral (kick stand is down), but will stall when the clutch is engaged to put the bike in gear.


hi,this might help,without looking at the bike it sounds like either the kickstand switch or the clutch lockout switch has failed,either switch failing will cause the problem you describe as they are both linked in the wiring harness..hope this helps...cheers ian

Engine stalls when the bike is put into gear


Clutch not disengaging ? This is a very vague description. With motorcycles coming in both standard (clutch) and automatic more information would be helpful.

Honda keeps stalling


You probably know this but... when you put it into gear you don't have your kickstand down do you. There is an automatic shutoff on the kickstand.
