Question about 2001 Yamaha XV 1600 Wild Star
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?
Hi, Tom and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch not properly adjusted.
2. Clutch plates rusted together.
3. Hydraulic clutch needs bleeding.
4. Faulty clutch slave cylinder.
5. Faulty clutch ramp mechanism.
6. Broken clutch rod
7. Clutch pack loose on the main shaft.

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

the abs module needs to be bled via the hd digital technician 2 software; sorry need to take it to a dealer; can't fully bleed the module w/o it and it may interfere w/ warranty issues later

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.
