Why when I am riding my motorcycle and I pull the Clutch to gear down my motorcycle it cut off and take long to start back.

Are you saying that when you put the bike into gear to pull away from standing, the engine cuts out? If so, then check your side stand switch. It is there to cut the engine out if you try to ride off with your stand down. Your stand may be up but the switch may be telling the engine it is down.

1996 villager vg30e distributor won't turn, gear inside engine does not turn

You have defective camshaft drive timing belt (also runs the distributor). Pull the front cover off the engine and take a look. This is a free running engine and the broken belt will cause no damage to the engine valves in this make, it is a different story in other models like the Maxima.

What kind of paint and brush should I use to paint my wooden bar stools?

You should first put a layer of primer using wood primerfrom a spray can. This will prevent thepaint from being absorbed into the wood. After 24 hours, you should use acrylic black (or whichever color youwant) paint in a spray can. The reason Irecommend spray paint is because it's easy and gives you tan even, blemish freecolor. Wait 24 hours (so that bubbleswon't form) and do another layer. If itdoesn't look thick enough to you, wait another 24 hours and do a final layer. There is no need for a clear finish.

I have not used the motor in 4 years, it worked fine when i put it away. now i hooked it up charged battery and it does not work, what might be the possible reasons for not working?

There are at least 10 reasons the engine won't start.
Please check the battery at the starter
Please clean the fuel system
Please check the fuel pump
Please check the Engine to see if it turns over.
Please check the connections and
If a standard shift car - - put a good battery in it - hook the car to a truck - pull the car carefully down a slow traffic road or better yet an open field and put the car in gear - let the clutch out and it will loosen a stuck engine usually. If the engine is turning over all ready you will hear and see a difference if you squirt WD40 into the intake system. Squirt WE40about 6 seconds - into the intake and see if the car 'fire' if not - You may have an electrical problem and that will require more information as to exactly what year make and model car or truck you have.

'06 vtx 1300 c : engine dies when put into gear

You have one of two things going on. (1) You need to check the kick stand switch, your bike thinks the kick stand is still down. It may have been loosened out of adjustment by vibration. If the kick stand switch is out of whack, it will restart as long as the clutch in pulled in. But as soon as you try to let out the clutch it will kill the engine, if it is in gear. (2) Next problem could be, you need to loosen up the clutch cable a little bit, The clutch control on the handle bar has a screw type of adjuster (clutch cable passes through it ), try loosening it till it's easy for you to move the bike without the engine shutting off. Hope it helps and comment if you need more clarification.

Just started to pull away from a stop in 1st and

sounds as though your input shaft broke, this would cause a loud clunk, cause it to feel as though in gear, and cause no pull.
