Hi Darrell it sounds like the side stand switch is sticking. Give a squirt of wd40 and push switch in and out a few times that should sort the problem out.

SOURCE: starts fine. sounds fine but dies upon putting it in gear

Your kickstand switch is either broken or out of position. The bike kills the engine as a safety feature if it thinks the sidestand is down and the bike is put in gear while the engine is running.

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

Even though you probably don't have that many miles on the bike, or if you do have a lot riding time on it, it sounds to me like you need a valve adjustment. That's a high reving bike for that engine that works pretty hard so you might have 1 - 3 loose valves.

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 ?

2006 Suzuki Boulevard c50. Main 30 amp fuse blows as soon as the start button is hit.


sounds like the starter is shorted out or the bike was tried to start when battery was near dead and the starter is engagaed if starter is engagaed put it in gear and bump(push the bike ) it a few times forward and back this should disengage the starter if it still blows fuses the you may have a shorted windings in the starter and it will need to be rebuilt

My 06 suzuki boulevard C50 will not take any gears they all seem to be neutral,anyone know what it could possibly be?


Possibly your clutch is worn beyond any usefullness, or is out of adjustment.
Could also be a broken shift linkage.

I have a 2005 Suzuki boulevard C50, it starts just fine in neutral but when I shift into first gear with clutch handle pressed it pulls forward real hard and then dies. Tried adjusting the clutch cable but...


Hi, this is a clutch adjustment issue. If you have maxed out the cable adjustment at the clutch lever, you will have to make adjustments down below, where the cable contacts the clutch cover. There's a million YouTube videos that will walk you through the process. If the bike still pulls forward when the clutch lever is engaged then your cable has probably stretched past its adjustment range over the years and needs to be replaced.
