Sounds like your clutch is partially engaged.
You may be able to adjust the screw near the lever to tighten the cable (take out the slack) and allow the clutch to disengage when you pull the lever.
If that does't work, the clutch plates may be dry or seized?

SOURCE: 1986 Aspencade clutch not working

Do I understand you added DOT fluid to your engine to fix your clutch problem?

Clutch is normally activated by a cable while brakes are activated through a master cyclender which uses DOT fluid.

If you have brake fluid in your engine ... get it out immediately. It might be time to get help from your local Honda Shop.

93fzr 600 dies when its put into gear

Hi. Sounds like a problem with the switch on the side stand. The bike will have a switch fitted to the side stand that will cut the motor if you try to select a gear while the side stand is down.. (Assuming you have put the stand up before trying to move off).
It is simply an open/close switch. If you do not have means to test the switch, you can replicate both ways and try it by 1st disconnecting the wires from the switch and separating them. If still the same, short the 2wires together and try it then. Remember though that this is a safety feature and should be rectified immediately.

Alternatively, it could be your clutch that is not adjusted up enough to fully disengage drive when fully in. This in effect will stall the bike as you try to select a gear.. This will be noticeable by the bike jumping to a stall when gear is selected as opposed to the motor just cutting out.

Hope this helps.

Gsx750 clutch cable

See if you can push the bike with it in gear and the clutch lever pulled in. If the clutch is stuck, push start the bike, jump on, get to about 10 mph, pull in the clutch lever and hit the rear brake hard. This will usually break a stuck clutch loose.

Bike jumps and stalls

clutch is not disengaging. wrong length cable or adjustment is way off. There should only be 1/4 inch of free pull on the clutch handle before you feel the tension of the clutch springs.

Bike jumps when on release of clutch in first gear and stalls

The clutch plates are probably rusted. I ride the bike with the clutch lever pulled in until very warmed up and keep blipping the throttle at low speeds in first gear this sometimes releases the stuck clutch.

Yamaha Pw80 clutch

The PW80 does not have a manual hand lever clutch, its a 3 speed semi auto. The bike will jerk and shut off when put in gear. If I put it in gear while rolling then it will work. Any ideas?

My Yamaha TTR250 1998 model starts and idles fine but when you put it into gear it stalls the bike?

I had an old YZ465 that use to do that. Has it sat a long time? I found on mine the clutch discs were stuck together. I use to start it and then push the bike and jump on and hit it in gear. That would break the discs loose. After that it would work fine until I stored the bike for a long time again.
Hope that helps. Just go easy with it, because the springs force all the oil out from between the clutch plates so they will be dry for just a moment where they were bound together..

My 2000 suzuki750 will not start without a jump. i charge the battery several times. when i put the bike in gear it shuts off then i have to jump it again to start. the cycle continue all over. can you...

Sounds like the battery has lost its capacity, also if you have the kickstand down when you put it into gear the engine will shut off. Try this, put jumper cables on the battery, hook it up to a car that is running, start the bike, put the kickstand up while holding the bike up and holding the clutch in, put it in gear. If it continues to run, disconnect the cables and see if it stalls. If it does, you need a new battery! Please rate this as helpful if it was. And write back a testimonial and let me know how you made out. Thanks Bob.

Gear problems

now you would have to make sure your clutch is not faulty as if the bike slightly jump while putting it in first gear and cuts off , you most probably have a clutch problem .
this is what you have to try first :
start the bike on while depressing the clutch while in gear and see what happens .
if the bike keeps on running , tension the clutch .
if the bike stall , your clutch could be faulty or your oil could be too ,thick and needs changing .
try this first and let me know how you go

1982 Honda 650 nighthawk; jumps and stalls when put into gear.

this may help,it doesnt sound like the clutch is out of adjustment,it sounds like the clutch plates have become stuck together,(this happens quite a bit if the bike has been parked for a over winter) fix it get the bike moving,down a drive way or something..then just bang it into gear,then shift into the highest gear you can by shifting without the clutch,once you have a bit of pace on simply hold the clutch lever in and work the throttle on and off all the while holding the clutch lever in,the clutch should free itself fairly quickly and should be back to normall,a lot of older bikes are good at doing this..hope this helps
