They are there for a purpose--your safety
if the clutch switch is bypassed , you can start it in gear and if the kick stand is bypassed you can start it with the bike up and it will take off in gear
If you do like dealing with them get off the bike until you can learn to a responsible rider and not living spare parts for some one else

It was as simple as a fuse. The high beam fuse is tied into the starter! Thanks for all of the suggestion!

Hi,
The first thing you need to check is the air filter. Sometimes critters can get into the airbox when a bike sits for awhile. Sounds crazy, but it has happened to me. If nothing is blocking the filter, give it a quick clean since you have it out.
Next things to check:
Faulty diaphragm
Improperly adjusted fuel level
Clogged or loose main jet
Faulty fuel pump
You may not be able to check these on your own, but these are the next likely culprits.
Hope this helped

So I just had this exact problem about an hour ago. I wondered about the starter, crankshaft, etc. but discarded them for the simplest explanation: battery.
I'm sure you've all noticed how absurdly easy it is to mistakenly miss the steering lock and put the parking lights on. Odds are you may have done this without realizing (I must've even if I don't remember). Jumper cables are the answer.
If you've never jumped a bike, here's the skinny: 1) Make sure the car you're jumping from is, and remains, off. 2) Connect the cables as normal; black to black, red to red. 3) Let the bike sit for a minute then start her up. 4) If you can, take her for a ride to get the charge back up.
If this doesn't work, then you may very well have more serious issues. Hope this helps, ride safe!

Kick stand switch may be the problem, if the kick stand is down and clutch out it wont start, sometime this switch will play up and it can be bypassed.

Wont crank in gear changed clutch switch changed kick-stand switch if running n let kickstand down it shuts off all three wires on clutch switch is producing fire 2000 zx9


I am not 100% on this one but I have owned several newer models 06 09 and 2010 and they all had cut out switches or kill switches if clutch wasn't pulled in or if stand was down they would not be able to start... So called safety devices they were called but damn annoying I felt no doubt you feel the same they all could be bypassed but in my experience bikes and their electrics should never be altered unless essential or your a master electrician
I am assuming your bike runs and starts well with clutch in and in neutral and with stand up ??
maybe ring your Kwaka dealer to confirm as I said I not certain when these safety switches started to be installed

When i start the bike and warm it up everything is cool, then i put it in gear and it quits running


there are safety switches on the clutch and sidestand, so you cant ride off with the stand down, one of those may be faulty,unplugged or have a wire broken

No starter engagement 2005 Silverado 1100


I would seriouly look at the starter clutch, the 1100 yamaha cruiser motors are notorious for this problem way back when the same motor was in the viragos and the xvs 1100 vstars, yamaha have tried to fix the prob over the years but stillhavn't got it right. if it just spins and whirs without engaging the engine, but sometime will kick in engagement, it sounds like your starter clutch is on it's way out. they cost from yamaha around $450- 500 ea plus around $350 to fit you have to include a $30 gasket in all that.

99 vstar 1100 quits when put in gear


couple of things to look for.

1. when you're putting it in gear, is the kick stand up or down. if down, most modern day bikes have a kick stand safety switch which will not allow you to put the bike in gear with the side stand down. this little relay may have failed. its usually located near the kick stand.

2. clutch disks may be stuck together. it happens on my old bikes from sitting too long (over a winter). when i pop it into first gear after i start it w/ clutch lever pulled, it will buck forward and die. i have to repeat a few times to get them unstuck.

good luck
