Sounds more like the clutch isn't engaging. If you get any action from the trans, it's in gear.

SOURCE: 06 Road King Classice shuts off when in 4th gear beloe 50mph

It's normal for the check engine light to take from 0 to a couple seconds to turn off. The computer runs a system check. Put an oil pressure gauge on the bike and watch it closely. If your pressure drops when the bike loses power, the engine may be locking up from lack of oil. Another possibility is your lean-angle cut-off switch is defective. The switch cuts power to the bike in case you lay it down. Harley also has had problems with their fuel injection system losing power for no apparent reason.

It is the dogs on the gears themselves that are worn. Only solution is to replace them, which means an engine strip or full replacement with another engine from a salvage shop.

SOURCE: clutch does not work bike rolls in gear

Sound like your clutch is out or maybe you can adjust your tension because it is lose and it is not grabbing.

SOURCE: Loss of power when in gear

Sounds like the carb is frozen or the ignition timing is way out (check distributor and loosen the clamp, turn it slightly with the engine running until it idles and revs up nice) . Reset the ignition timing, if that does not cure it, a carb rebuild is on the cards.

Vote for me if this helps, thanks.

Hi I have a 2002 Corolla with an apexi, when driving it can start to splutter a bit and I have to put my accelerator down fully just to maintain the revs, then as the car slows I have to change down a gear...


Most common problem is the IAC(Idle Air Control) valve.But if you say some times work I will suspect the throttle is clogged. Remove the Air hose,apply full throttle and hold, spray carburetor cleaner on clot using thin long nose player clean inside wall and throttle. don't spray directly inside because the carb cleaner is to aggressive for some of the gasket.
Good Luck

Loosing power


Instructions
  1. Power Wheelies
    • 1 Stand above the motorcycle with it running in neutral at the starting line of the track or one end of a long practice area. Pull in the clutch and shift the motorcycle into first gear.
    • 2 Begin rolling forward by rolling on the throttle smoothly and slowly letting out the clutch. When you are at a speed that is comfortable enough to put both feet on the pegs, lean forward on the bike and roll the throttle back quickly. Make this motion as fluid as possible so as not to overdo the wheelie. The front of the motorcycle will rise off the ground.
    • 3 Rev the motorcycle all the way to the red-line in first gear to pull the front of the motorcycle up into the air. This will not be a high or long wheelie, but is a great starting point. When you hit the red-line, pull in the clutch and shift to second. The front end will fall back down. Do not, for any reason, activate the front brake, while the front wheel is in the air, as this will cause the bike to crash upon contacting the pavement.
    Clutching Up
    • 4 Begin riding at a moderate pace in second or third gear. Be sure that you have plenty of space in front of you before beginning the execution of a "Clutch Up"
    • 5 Pull in the clutch as if to shift to the next gear but do not press the shift lever. Instead, rev the motorcycle by rolling back on the throttle smoothly and quickly. Let go of the clutch quickly (but as smoothly as possible) and lean forward to offset the power of the motorcycle.
    • 6 Repeat this maneuver multiple times to get comfortable with the motions. The front of the motorcycle may hop only slightly until you figure out the right amount of throttle and clutch to give the engine. Remember to never hit the front brake with the wheel in the air.
    • 7 Perform a proper wheelie by pulling in the clutch, revving the engine, leaning forward slightly and then dropping the clutch. Be sure to cover the rear brake with your right foot as it will keep the motorcycle from flipping if you give it too much gas.
    • 8 Hold the throttle at a steady position to keep the front wheel in the air. Bring the front wheel back down by pulling in the clutch or pressing softly on the rear brake.

Xlr 125 wont start do i have to pull the clutch in to start it


You need to put it into neutral in order to start it or pull the clutch and hold it down until started. I would suggest putting it into neutral. Double check that you have it in neutral by trying to push the bike without holding down the clutch when you think you have it in neutral. If the bike rolls easily, then you know its in neutral. If it won't push or seems hard to get it to roll forward then you know its still in gear. Once you have it in neutral (for sure), hold the clutch down and start the bike.

Othen than that, all you have to do is make sure its turned on and it should start. Some bikes use a key to turn it on, others have a throttle control switch. We had Suzuki Quad racers which were 2 stroke - and are a little different.

I put the bike in gear but when i pull the clutch lever in, it wont disengage and stays in gear??


if the clutch lever feels it has plenty of tension, it may just be the clutch plates stuck together from sitting.

Roll start it and ride around while holding in the clutch, vary the throttle, and they usually unstick. Give it an oil change when it warms up.

Start bike in nutral hold in clutch put into first and imediately stalls


G'Day mate,
Sounds like the bike has a stuck clutch, where the pressure plates and clutch plates are not disengaging, probably from sitting for a while. Check the clutch adjustments first to see that you have good operation and tension in the clutch lever. To break it free, try first allowing the engine to heat up to operating temp, this can sometimes allow the clutch to free up with heat expansion.
If you can get the bike to a rolling start(mate pushing) and get into a gear, go roll on and off the throttle a few times with the clutch pulled in, see if you can break it loose. Some peps have success with wrapping wire about the handle bar holding the lever in, and let it sit over night, let the oil into the clutch plates.
Dont get too carried away with dropping it into gear with the engine running. You dont want to do more damage. If it remains an issue, you will have to remove the clutch cover and tear the clutch down. check plates for wear and warping. Replace if required. Good luck with it.

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 while..ie over winter)..to 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

Problem with throttle


Sounds a lot like clutch slippage to me. First I would check clutch oil. If it is low or worn enough to have lost its viscosity that could be the cause. Here is the backyard **** mechanic way to check clutch wear and slippage. Crude but effective. Point the bike toward a sturdy flat stationary object (a brick wall?). Roll the front wheel firmly against the wall. Make sure the bike is perfectly perpendicular to the wall, the frot wheel is aligned straight, and that the rear wheel is on a solid surface (concrete or asphalt -- not grass or dirt). Climb aboard into riding position and start the bike. In first gear clutch in, rev the bike as you would for a moderate start away from a stop (maybe 3k-4k or so) and slowly release the clutch. If the clutch is good, as the clutch starts to grab the revs will go down noticeably, and as it gets fully engaged or close to it the bike will stall. If the clutch is slipping (depending on how bad it is) the motor will continue to spin at pretty much the same speed as the clutch is engaged. This is a kind of touch-feel thing but if the clutch is bad, you should know it. Needless to say do this carefully and at your own risk, but it works a wonder if you do it right. Another way to check is to ride the bike. Get into the power range barely (above 8K) and hold it steady. Does not really matter what gear, but I suggest 2nd or 3rd. Whack the throttle. If the RPMs rise quickly (quicker than the speed) you've got clutch slippage.,,,
