The bike thinks your kickstand is down. There is a switch that is activated when the kickstand is up, that switch may be broken or bent out of position. Either fix it or bypass it by twisting the two wires together or unplugging it and jumpering the connection and you should be going in a few minutes.

I have a 2006 honda shadow aero. engine dies when put in gear. kickstand switch measuers good at plug...clutch switch measures good...clutch disengages properly...what else can it be?


Hi, Dan the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

My 250 honda rebel runs fine in neutral but shuts off when i put it in gear. When i don't have the cluch engaged it lurches foward slightly then shuts off.


Check the side stand kill switch. Broken, loose or out of adjustment it will kill the bike when put in gear. The idea is to prevent starting out with the side stand down. Check the wires and connections also.
