Question about Motorcycles
When I have the kickstand up the bike starts and runs fine, but if I don't have the kickstand up the bike won't start at all. A friend of mine has a bike similar to mine and his will start while the kickstand is down.
Thgis is normal ... it is a safety interlock. Put the side stand in the storage position before you start and you will be just fine.

Your carb idle pins/needle valves are either fouled or worn/damaged. Or floats that control your equilibrium for gas distribution throughout the carb array are not working together with valves/pins. Has this bike set a spell, at least once for too long of an interval? I'd pull the whole darn carb setup and inspect/clean, then reinstall exactly to specs. Ask for the very best teardown/rebuild cleaner for carbs at the parts store! Betcha a little elbow grease and a perfect dismantle and clean, then rebuild is all you need! Been there----Did dat!

Sort of sounds like a Twilight Zone kind of problem doesn't it. I would have the battery checked for an internal dead short. This is something that happens on odd occasions and can happen even to a new battery. Yea, the little lights will work ( they do not draw much juice ), but the starter motor draws a lot of juice and a shorted battery just ain't got it. Also check the wiring harness connections. One loose connection can cause bunches of trouble.

its probably put the bike in limp mode which limits the bikes performance while being diagnosed for problems.they cant be read now because you have removed the readout from the system. the meter in these bikes are an integral part of the entire elec. system. when you reinstall the meter, it will probably flash a "code" to show the problem it encountered. unhook the battery for about 5 min. then rehook and start bike. after warmup, it should run ok if all systems are goes.
