Hi!
Although the switch is not connected it is still reading an open circuit you need to bridge the wires (Connect/join them) closing it so the inhibitor doesn't cut off the ignition.
If you don't want to bridge the wires try keeping the button of the switch in? Remember however you do this it may come out whilst riding and cut the engine possibly in a dangerous manoevre?? or overtaking causing drastic results.
There you go, sorted!

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.

I have a 2008 hyosung gt250r. All of a sudden it has started this issue. Where i start the bike in neutral then go to get first gear and the bike just cuts out each time..so ive had to start off in second...


The problem is the side stand cut out switch - it allows you to start the bike to warm it up on the side stand but if you true to ride off with the side stand down the bike will cut out reminding you the stand is down.
If you bike is cutting out when putting it into gear after starting it is definitely the cut out switch - check the side stand there will be a switch around it some where close to were it bolts onto the frame.

Bike cuts out when i put it in gear,,,,,,,,,,,,1990 xt 600


Might be a problem with your side stand switch, if the bike thinks the stand is down then every time you put it into gear it's going to cut out. Try manually operating the switch. You can also disconnect the side stand switch and connect the wires on the loom side directly together in case the switch itself is faulty and can't close the circuit to allow starting.

Bike wont start up unless i put the side stand up


The bike could be fitted with a side stand cut off switch. this is to stop the rider driving off with the side stand down. also if the bike is in gear the bike should not start, this is linked to the clutch/gears. AGAIN IT STOPS THE RIDER FIRING UP THE BIKE AND THE NEXT thing he is aware of is his bike either taking off with out him or hitting a wall or car etc.
hope this helps

Motor cuts out when gear engaged


Make sure you have your stand up before you put it in gear. Some bikes have a stand switch that doesnt allow the bike to be in gear while the stand is down. This switch may have been damaged when the bike fell and now be malfunctioning.

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.

My dt125 starts but when i put it in gear it cuts out


SOUNDS LIKE IT COULD BE THE SAFETY SWITCH FOR THE KICK STAND ,IF THE SWITCH HAS BEEN DAMAGED IT WILL START UP FINE AND WHEN PUT IN TO GEAR AND CLUTCH IS RELEASED IT WILL DIE.(This is a safety feature)

If that don't fix,Please post back

Cuts out


Does it have a kick stand interlock switch? If so, the stand needs to be up when you select a gear, or it cuts off. If the switch is bad or out of adjustment, it will cut off when put in gear.
