Most bikes have a neutral switch, which lights up neutral light on dash, or even to allow bike to turn over starter.you need to find it on the bike and check it, it may be shorting, or loose.

Some of these bikes have a safety switch on the side stand, did you check that?

93fzr 600 dies when its put into gear


Hi. Sounds like a problem with the switch on the side stand. The bike will have a switch fitted to the side stand that will cut the motor if you try to select a gear while the side stand is down.. (Assuming you have put the stand up before trying to move off).
It is simply an open/close switch. If you do not have means to test the switch, you can replicate both ways and try it by 1st disconnecting the wires from the switch and separating them. If still the same, short the 2wires together and try it then. Remember though that this is a safety feature and should be rectified immediately.

Alternatively, it could be your clutch that is not adjusted up enough to fully disengage drive when fully in. This in effect will stall the bike as you try to select a gear.. This will be noticeable by the bike jumping to a stall when gear is selected as opposed to the motor just cutting out.

Hope this helps.

See if you can push the bike with it in gear and the clutch lever pulled in. If the clutch is stuck, push start the bike, jump on, get to about 10 mph, pull in the clutch lever and hit the rear brake hard. This will usually break a stuck clutch loose.

Put in gaer and dies


Some bikes have one or more safety features regarding the clutch and gear box. One feature is a micro-switch at the clutch master/lever, it tells the safety system if the clutch lever is out or in. If the switch fails the safety system will think the lever is out (allowing power to rear wheel) and kill the engine to prevent the bike from lurching forward, potentially causing the bike and rider to go down. The other feature is not as common, it is a similar switch at the side stand. This prevents the rider from starting off with the side stand down. Which can also cause the bike and rider to go down. If that switch fails then the bike will think the side stand is always down and will kill the engine as soon as it put into gear. If you know how to use a multimeter you can test the switch(s) for function and determine if it is failed. Otherwise have it checked by a competent mechanic.

There is also a recall on your bike (and many others with the same gearbox) regarding the power train. A good reason to get you bike in, fix this safety issue and your original issue.

I have a yamaha virago 250 1996 model. Ok, now. I take the stand off. The engine switch is in Run position. When I press the clutch and put my bike in gear , and try to start it, it does not start...why ?...


The clutch master/lever has a safety switch that tells the bike if the clutch lever is in (no power to rear) or out (power to rear). After almost 30 years this switch may have failed, making the bike think that the clutch is engaged regardless of lever position. If you have a multimeter you can test the switch yourself. Since the bike starts properly in neutral (also a safety feature) then the clutch lever switch is your most likely problem. Your bike might also have a side stand switch like mine. It functions much the same way, if the side stand is down and the bike put in gear it will kill the engine.

Why bike wont starts in gear


Safety feature ... side stand down and bike in gear = will not start. Bike in gear, side stand up and clutch not pulled = will not start. Safety features. Please use them - please do not try to defeat them.

I start my bike and the engine runs but when i put itinti gear the engine dies. why is this?


I'm not familiar with this particular model but let's see what we can do.

If the bike lurches forward when you put it into gear, you clutch is either not releasing for some reason or the clutch plates are stuck. In the case of the stuck clutch, you'll need to disassemble and free up the clutch pack.

Since I can't find much on your particular model, it appears to have lights on it. If this is the case, it may have a kickstand position switch. If the kickstand is down and you put it into gear, the engine is shut off. This is a safety feature on some bikes. Try raising the kick stand prior to putting the bike into gear.

Good Luck!!

2003 SUZUKI GSXR 600 SHIFTING QUESTION


just input , not resolving anything. but i used to have a similar issue with mine, but i had a gs 750t . it has around 20,000 on the clock. sometimes it didnt want to shift into 1st from a dead stop, i had to let out on clutch, then pull clutch again , then it went right in. the gears are so fine cut in the bikes that once they get worn, even the shift fork, it gets a little harder to get into those gears without a little coaxing. by the sounds of it (without knowing the mileage) i dont think id worry too much. especially if its shifting up and down through gears without grinding of any sort. if the clutch is ok on it (being an 03) i assume its still touchy , ull be ok
