Neutral light off but motor is in neutral , bike won't start


Check your stand safety switch. Or your gear sensor. One of these is guilty!!!

I have a gpx600 1989 and my sidestand switch is


To lose the switches job, cut the 2 wires and twist them together, this will complete the circuit and the bike will think the kick stand is up, I did this, and do you know how many times I took off with the kick stand down??? Lots!! They make a kit that will fix this, it will start with the kickstand down, but kill the engine if it is put in gear.

I have a 2001 kawasaki 125 eliminator shuts off


If it dies when put into gear then its the side-stand switch (stand is down or switch not working)
If it dies when the clutch lever is released then either it was released too quickly with not enough revs, the engine doesnt have enough power to pull away or possibly the clutch switch is working in reverse

Good Luck
Hope this helps.

Dt125 cuts out when i put in gear


Hi!
Although the switch is not connected it is still reading an open circuit you need to bridge the wires (Connect/join them) closing it so the inhibitor doesn't cut off the ignition.
If you don't want to bridge the wires try keeping the button of the switch in? Remember however you do this it may come out whilst riding and cut the engine possibly in a dangerous manoevre?? or overtaking causing drastic results.
There you go, sorted!
