My Bike dies when I have her in neutral and I release the clutch. It runs fine when its in gear though. Please help?!

I can ride my bike but when I put it in neutral and release the clutch, she dies. I'm thinking its electrical? As long as the clutch is in, it runs fine.

Not Accelerating beyond 40-50 kmph


NOT clutch issue - if it was the clutch the rpms would rev out but bike would go no faster.
Sounds like carburetor may be partially plugged up, main jet.
Or air filter needs replacing.

First time driving a 1967 Triumph motorcycle coming up. Would like advice on where stuff is like clutch, brake, shifter and how to shift -- where the gears are. Thanks. Art asanfelici@verizon.net


Hi Art! First of all, congratulations on your 1967 Triumph... that's a beauty!!!

Basic things to know before riding a bike is it's parts.

Clutch is the lever you press on the left side of the handle bar.

Front disc brake is the lever on the right side of the handle bar.

Shifter is the one you're stepping on when shifting gears and is located on the left side of the engine if you're on it.

Now, you must first know if the gear is on Neutral by pushing the bike before starting the bike. If it's hard to push then the shifter is not in neutral. Press the shifter by your left foot until you are able to push the bike with ease.

Hop on the bike and start the engine. Most bikes have ignition starters but if your bike doesn't have one, then you have to turn keys to on position and use the kick starter. Rev the engine by pressing the throttle grip on the right side of the handle bar.

Engine is running and in idle position. Press the Clutch lever (left hand) and press the shifter once (left foot) DO NOT RELEASE THE CLUTCH YET!!!

Slowly press the throttle with your right hand until you hear or feel the engine purr...

Slowly release the clutch (left hand) until you fell the bike move forward.

If I am not mistaken, shifting the gears of the triumph is 1-down and 4 up...

Every time you shift gears, you need to press the clutch to release the gears.

Hope you'll have fun!!!

Ride safe my friend!!!

Don't forget your riding gears!!!

Have to hold clutch to keep bike from dieing


clutch plate adjusment or cable adjustment, it sounds like the clutch is staying engaged, try loosening the cable on the clutch until there is lots of slack init and try to start the bike, if it jerks forward then you are going to have to adjust/replace the internal clutch plates hope this helps

After starting my Roadstar in neutral, as soon as I put it in gear, it dies. It reacts to the shift, not the clutch. Is it electrical? Mechanical? I need help troubleshooting. thanks.


With the engine off, put it in gear and pull the clutch lever. If the bike rocks freely back and forth, the clutch is releasing correctly and eliminates mechanical problems. The only possible electrical problem would be a wiring fault involving a gear position indicator (if the bike has such a thing). If it does have such an indicator, find the switch (on either side of the transmission case) and disconnect the wiring (plug?) Try the bike again. If it now keeps running, I'd suspect some form of cross wiring short within the wiring harness. If it does not run at all, then the bike probably won't start and run except in neutral--hook up the switch again. Did this problem start suddenly, or after a repair of some sort???

Stalling problem from neutral to first gear


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, if the bike will be run without its own battery, the engine will really stall. This is because there will be no consumer for the voltage output other than the ignition system which will clamp down when the engine is revved and the voltage tends to go higher still.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
