Your kickstand switch is either broken or out of position. The bike kills the engine as a safety feature if it thinks the sidestand is down and the bike is put in gear while the engine is running.

You can cut the wire and by-pas the switch. Either twist the wires together or wrap electrical tape around the ends and keep them apart, whichever makes the engine not die.

Sounds corney, but take the end of the exhaust off then retry. A blocked baffle could cause that exact problem.

2006 Suzuki boulevard surges forward and dies when put into gear. Once put back in neutral it starts fine and put in gear again does the same thing, any ideas on what this may be?


Hi Darrell it sounds like the side stand switch is sticking. Give a squirt of wd40 and push switch in and out a few times that should sort the problem out.

1997 Suzuki Intruder VS800...starts, runs, stalls


Hi, Anonymous the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

1993 Suzuki Intruder 800. All of a sudden my clutch didn't seem to work. I was only a mile away from home so I decided to get it home.I couldn't upshift very easily, even harder (almost impossible)...


Hi, Dvdjackson52 if you can access all gears with the engine not running your probably ok and the clutch adjustment just needs some fine tuning for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $ you can download another one.

Starts but when i put in gear dies,why?


If your side stand is down the safety switch will kill the motor when you put it in gear. On Suzuki's you need to have your stand up to keep the engine from killing when you put it in gear. If this is not the case, you may have a problem related to the side stand kill switch . I would start my investigation there.
