2001 XV 1600 Road Star Silverado lurches forward and dies when put into gear

I have a 2001 road star Silverado. When you put it in first gear, you better have your hand on the brake cause it wants to take off with the clutch lever in. WHY? When holding the brakes when this happens then it dies. Please, what is my problem?

SOURCE: 1100 wierd clutch disengage problem

Bleed your slave cylinder on the sprocket cover and refill the hydraulic fluid. If you have any leaks you will get air in the system and it will not fully disengage the clutch. As for the 750, they have cable clutches and you just need to adjust the slack of the cable.

You most likely have a wheel speed sensor dropping out this would make abs system think one wheel is locking up and therefore activate. this usually will happen rt before you stop at around 5mph or so.Also if you have bigger tires than factory and have not had abs programmed for this size it can aggravate it

SOURCE: when holding clutch and putting into first gear, completely dies

whats happening is your clutch plates are sticking together. try tightening up the clutch cable a bit. im not sure if it is cable, it may be hydraulic? if it is, then bleed the clutch to get any air out of the system. if that doesnt work, then try an oil change. sometimes old, thick oil wont let the clutch plates seperate, and you get that jerking when your engine is cold. use a light oil. maybe 5-30 or 10-30. a light oil will make it easier for the clutch to disengage.

What when coming to a full stop and applying the clutch and the break sometimes causes a thumping sound or stuttering sound. At times when releasing the break and the clutch th


You should only put the car in neutral then apply the brake.
If you continue to drive with the brake and the clutch it's going to burn out the clutch.
Just when you are coming up to a light take the shifter out of gear and then put it in neutral then apply the brakes.
You will notice the car will drive better
Hope this helps.
The stuttering and jerking motion means usually that you are starting at a to high of a gear or to low. The brake will cause the situation you are having. if you are applying it any time during shifting

Clutch is gone out. Cable may be broken. Clutch can be worn and need to adjust the clutch cable to get it in the right spot to go in gear. Or you may need to add gear oil that your bike requires for the gear box. If none of that helps you may need to rebuild the gear box.
