1983 Yamaha XJ650 Stalls when you put into first gear

Hello,

Bike will start ok, then when I go to take off it will kind of sputter and then stall and then I do it again and the same thing happens. If I slowly let the clutch out or rev it nothing seems to help. My first bike and I don't know what to do.

Cheers,

Amanda

    I would need more info, if this is the first you have ridden this year i would say you need to clean the carbs. If the bike has been sitting up for 4-5 months, gas will pull water out of the air and mix to make
    muck that gums up your carbs. you can try getting a turkey baster
    and getting a can of Seafoam pull the line loose from your fuel tank and blast that seafoam stuff into your carbs leave it over night. Do it again the next day and then with fresh gas in the tank try to start it up.

I had a simular problem on one of my other bikes. Bike will start fine, idle, rev up, but when you try to go it would spit and sputter. I found that the carbs were gummed up and not firing on all cylinder. easy way to check is start it up let it idle for a few seconds then get a spray bottle with water and spray the exhaust. if the cylinder is firing the water will sizzle if it is not it will just bead off. DO NOT do this when it is HOT this can cause many other problem only just after start up with a few minutes of running. Then you would know if you have some dead cylinders and then you can start back tracking from that because it could be carbs, plugs, coils, loose wire, but it will give you a start.
