SOURCE: clutch not engaging properly

The clutch is not dis-engaging properly. Cables can stretch a bit. There shou;ld be an adjuster either at the clutch handle or at the transmission. Just take most, not all, of the slack out of the cable.
You should be back to normal now.

Please rate this solution as "FixYa" or post a comment if the problem is still present. Thanks!

Sidestand switch broken or moved? If the switch does not detect the sidestand is retracted it will kill the engine when it is put in gear.

SOURCE: when i pull the clutch on my dirt bike it doesn't

First, get a new clutch cable. Tape the new cable to the old one and unhook the old one. Now you have a new cable and a reserve cable ready for use if needed during a race.

Second, change gearbox oil and install a new oil filter if your bike has one. All the dirt and grit in the oil is binding the clutch. Ride the bike for a couple of hours using the clutch often. Now drain the oil again and put in fresh oil. This will flush out the dirt and grit. Use 10w40 motor oil. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.

The clutch's plates must be stuck.Disassemble them and renew if necessary.The clutch lever should have 3mm freeplay and the spring's bolts should be tighten at 14Nm.

SOURCE: 1987 kx125 clutch wont engage

Is something missing in the actuator linkage assembly? Has this problem been there since you obtained the bike? Too much free play at the clutch lever (should be ~1/2 to 3/4 inch)? Wrong number of clutch disks? Are the clutch springs installed correctly and not bottomed out. Inspect the hub and the inside of the outer drum of the clutch. Look for badly worn spots in either that can hang up the release of the disks. Leave the clutch cover off so that you can observe clutch operation (engine off). The outermost plate should move outward somewhat when you pull the lever. Put transmission in second gear and rock the bike while operating the clutch. It should allow the bike to move without turning the engine. If the whole clutch moves out, then there may be a missing/broken snap ring which holds the outer drum of the clutch to the transmission shaft.

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 ?

Why does my 2007 1100 V-star die when I put it in gear?


Hi Don does the bike jump forward as of the clutch wasn't working? If so the clutch is stuck. To fix put thd bike in high gear and hold in the clutch push the bike back and forward with the help of a friend until it frees up. If this is not the problem check the side stand switch it might be faulty. If you have a doubt about the switch join the two wires together temporary to test. Regards Jim...

My 1981 yamaha exciter 185 dies when i put it in gear i've already tried adjusting clutch still dies. was running fine for prior 3 months


The bike will either have a side stand cut out switch or a clutch cut out switch.

Both these will make the bike die when the side stand is down or the clutch is not pulled in

Bike dies when put in gear


Hi Ron, I would check the clutch interface switch at the clutch lever it sounds as if it is either faulty, broken, come loose or stuck. Some bikes have loads of problems with this beastie. Pull in the clutch lever then try spraying some lube between the lever and the stock and see if you can see the switch plunger move. You might have to remove the clutch lever completely to see this if you do then you should be able to push the plunger in by finger and see it spring back out. The whole switch does in some cases come loose if you look for 2 wires going into the clutch lever stock see it the thing they go into is loose or pushed out, normally they just push back with a slight click. When you operate the clutch lever the switch plunger should move out allowing the bike to start in gear. On my Suzuki you have to operate the clutch lever to start even in neutral. Hope this helps

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!

The Clutch on some bikes will disengage the starter motor. Yamaha will not allow you to engage gear when the side stand is down. Hope this gives you some idea

When running.. even with front brake,and clutch in,putting it in gear makes the bike die?


The clutch plates are stuck inside the clutch basket. This is real common if the bike has been sitting up for awhile. Clean & disassemble the clutch assembly to fix this problem.

On my 72 cb100 when I pull the clutch in, the bike dies while idling. It runs fine while getting gas, but does not run at idle. It will start right back up when it does die. Any ideas?


The slow circuit of the carburetor is dirty. Take the carburetor off and remove the slow and main jets. Shoot carburetor cleaner through the jets and through the passageways of the carburetor body to be sure that it is clear. Does the bike die when you pull in the clutch and put it into gear? If it dies when you put it in to gear , you may have clutch plates that are stuck together. Take off the engine side cover, remove the clutch springs, pull out the clutch boss and the clutch plates. Carefully separate the plates, replace any damaged plates, coat the plates with oil and put them back in the same order. This should make the clutch act normally again.
