Possibly, but you can short it out to prove the switch. try pulling the clutch in when you start. The stand cut out should only cut the engine if the bike is in gear.

SOURCE: when in gear bike cuts out when moving off?

sounds like its the safty cut out switch on the stand to me as well, you should see it by looking under the bike by the stand,,,its just a push in switch,,,
as for leaving the bike over winter with out charging the battery up,,,well smack your legs! you will soon need a new battery for that!
il give you a tip here!!!! get yourself a cheap solar charger of say 2.5 watts hook that to the bikes battery and leave the charger in good light,(sun light is good) but good day light works as well, this will keep the battery fully charged up all winter and can double the life of the battery,,,cheap power?

Bill,
What you are describing sounds like an ignition coil breaking down as soon as it come up to temperature. It could also be as simple as a spark plug and most probably is. I tend to disagree with the suggestion you received about the contact points (if your motorcycle actually has them). Generally points will make a mess out of starting and if they are failing wouldn't wait 20 minutes to let you know. I'm going to say spark plug(s) (change 'em both) then possibly a coil OR the high tension lead is shorting against the block or some part of the frame. Now I can't say names or someone will get upset but a German made motorcycle doesn't generally work to well with spark plugs made in America. Been in the Recreational business for a lot of years and if there is one spark plug that just works it's found in every Honda MC and of course is made in Japan. Hope you picked up on were i was trying to lead you ;-). Cheers have a great day, hum you riding your motorcycle and I'm up to my bum in snow and getting another foot of the stuff :-(

Bypass your switch,,,,Unplug the switch and see if it runs,,,If not,,,run a loop wire between the two wires on the switch,,,Read your wiring diagrams.

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.

Sounds like the cut out switch on the kick stand. The bike shouldn't start if you have the kick stand down. Check the kick stand is fully retracted and that the switch is disengaging OK. Maybe the stand is slightly loose & its making contact even when retracted. Otherwise check the kill switch. Both parts are available cheaply on ebay & easy to replace.

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
