Question about 2001 Buell Blast

2001 buell x1 lightning won't run when put in gear

This bike will start and run fine in neutral but when you pull in the clutch it stalls as soon as you put it in first gear. When you put it back in neutral and try again it does the same thing over and over. It looks like the diodes got hot and somewhat melted. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated since it is riding season! Thanks.

    got a 03 xb9r about a week ago. havent got the helmet yet, so i havent even taken it out on my first ride. just started it a few times and cleaned it up. long story short - started it and put it in first... cleaned rims and after shutting it off (still in first) tried to fire it back up. bike jumped forward like the clutch wasnt it (which it was.) tried to get it back into neutral - cant find it. rocked it back and forth - no luck.
    bottom line - its stuck in first. messed with it trying to get it out of gear off and on 3 or 4 times. (i dont want to get too ****** off so i take breaks.)
    i would think i could get it back into gear by simply pulling up on shifter as i rocked it back and forth, and i cant find first even with the clutch in! watched a video on adjusting the clutch, going to try that. but i would think it would still find neutral even if the clutch isnt adjuststed perfect. could it be a simple fix (obviously my hope) or ?

Could be the kickstand switch or bank angle sensor. I actually just cut the wires to my kickstand switch when it stopped working. Parking lot repair thats held up.

It may be the kickstand switch is broken. Test to see does the switch work.

Starts in neutral w/ kickstand up, dies when put in gear. NOT Kickstand Switch


it sounds like the clutch is dragging,either it is not adjusted properly or the clutch friction or metal plates are warped and acting like wave washers.you should have about 2mm of free play at the end of the clutch lever when its not being pulled in.also too thick an oil in the engine in it like 20/50 it should be using 10w 40 semi synthetic oil.does it try to pull forwards with the clutch in slightly when you put it in gear ?

Hi, Anonymous for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.
