    sounds like the cable tension needs to be adjusted, have you done anything or had anything done to the bike recently?

Kawasaki starter not engaging


Hi, Ricky the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

When I put in gear it dies out


Many times , when a Bike sits a long while all the oil presses out of the Clutches. Then the Clutch plates get a suction to each other. so it acts like the clutch is engaged.
any times you do not have to take the 'mouse nest apart. You can hole the Handbrake tight hold in the clutch. Start bike, rev it a little and bang it into first gear . If it stalls the bike, do it again. Also you can try Tying the Clutch lever down all night. that may let the clutches separate

I have a 2004 Gsxr 1000 and the starter spins but the flywheel doesn't engage why is that


The best way to check if the bendix is kicking out to engage is to bench test the starter. remove the starter and place a ground wire to the frame or housing of the stater and touch a 12v hot lead to the pos post of starter being careful not to let starter jump away from you. when the starter engages the gear should come out to the end of it's travel, the starter gear is spring loaded.

How to drive?


you can ride the cluthch on a bike un like a car you wont hurt it its oil lubricated constantly, sitting on the bike pull the clutch in with your left hand and click the left foot lever down in to 1st, then learn how to click it back up 1 half movement in to neutral. the neutral light will come on sfter the bike enters neutral. in first gear give the throttle on the right hand a squeeze and pull the clutch in with your left hand put foot gear selector down in to 1 st and begin to release clutch slowly. hold on as bike will engage may be jerky balance yourself! when you get moving stop! by pulling the clutch in and the hand brake as you close the throttle to stop! practice your take off many times some where safe! when you get your balance in 1st gear pick up speed and begin shifting the foot gear selector up in to 2nd gear and practice closing the throttle and breaking to a safe stop. gears are generslly 1st down 1 click 2345 and6th all up from there and neutral is 1 half a click up from 1st between 2nd gear. And dont put it in gear with the kick stand down t may stall on you

hope this helps

The bike will not shift into gear. The clutch has plenty of spring tension just will not engage


if the bike has been sitting for a while the clutch plates can stick together, you will still feel spring tension from the pressure plate. two ways to free it up.
with the engine stopped click it up into top gear, put the front wheel against a wall, pull in the clutch, and push on the kick start, or push start it in gear, pull in the clutch and vary the throttle .
Change the oil after the ride with good motorcycle engine oil.

No clutch control,bike stays engaged in gear with clutch depressed


assuming the cable is fine and you have pressure at the lever.sometimes the plates can stick together when it sits for a while. put it in top gear 6th, put the front wheel against a wall, hold the clutch in and put some weight on the kick start. or push start it and hold the clutch in and vary the throttle to try and free the clutch

Kick start is jammed


Put the bike in 3rd, 4th or 5th gear, the higher the better. Sit on the bike, with your hand off the clutch lever, and rock the bike back and forth to rotate the clutch hub. This might free up the lever. You will need to drain the oil and remove the right side casing to see and service the kick starter. If I recall correctly, there is a spring clip that allows the kick gear to engage the clutch hub. The piece could be broken, weak or out of position.

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

Stalling problem from neutral to first gear


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, if the bike will be run without its own battery, the engine will really stall. This is because there will be no consumer for the voltage output other than the ignition system which will clamp down when the engine is revved and the voltage tends to go higher still.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
