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.

Make sure your kickstand is up when you put it in gear, the kickstand has a kill switch on it and will only run in neutral if it is down

I have a 2006 honda shadow aero. engine dies when put in gear. kickstand switch measuers good at plug...clutch switch measures good...clutch disengages properly...what else can it be?


Hi, Dan 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.

2004 Honda, 1100 Shadow Spirit, starts fine, ideals fine, but when I put it in gear it dies


Hi, David_rebeka and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty wiring to any safety switch.
2. Safety switches loose at the mounting point.
3. Faulty kickstand safety switch.
4. Failed kickstand safety switch circuit diode.
5. Stretched side stand spring.
6. Side stand not coming up far enough to disengage switch.
7. Faulty clutch lever safety switch.
8. Faulty neutral safety switch.
9. Clutch not properly adjusted.
10. Clutch plates sticking, forward lurch

2003 honda 750 ace, with the clutch lever pulled back when you put it in gear the engine dies.


Check you side stand safety switch. If it is unplugged, removed, or malfuntioning, the bike's system will think the side stand is down and kill the engine when the bike is put into gear.

I was riding my bike died oil light came on i put oil in lights still on and bike still wont start its a honda shadow 750


Oil light does not mean that you don't have oil inside.It means that there is NO pressure in the oil circuit.You should check your oil pump and hope it did not ruin your engine from lack of oil underneath the pistons.Measure the compression too.
