You have one of two things going on. (1) You need to check the kick stand switch, your bike thinks the kick stand is still down. It may have been loosened out of adjustment by vibration. If the kick stand switch is out of whack, it will restart as long as the clutch in pulled in. But as soon as you try to let out the clutch it will kill the engine, if it is in gear. (2) Next problem could be, you need to loosen up the clutch cable a little bit, The clutch control on the handle bar has a screw type of adjuster (clutch cable passes through it ), try loosening it till it's easy for you to move the bike without the engine shutting off. Hope it helps and comment if you need more clarification.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty wiring to any safety switch.
2. Safety switches loose at the mounting point.
3. Faulty kickstand safety switch.
4. Failed kickstand safety switch circuit diode.
5. Stretched side stand spring.
6. Side stand not coming up far enough to disengage switch.
7. Faulty clutch lever safety switch.
8. Faulty neutral safety switch.
9. Clutch not properly adjusted.
10. Clutch plates sticking, forward lurch

No fuel to carb, I think..


Its seems the the gas is not entering the carburator.
Sometimes if theres water in the gas (since you had filled her up ) one experiences same symptons.
Best would be to clean the carburator but first check the petc o c k if it is allowing full flow of the gas to the carb.

Just get a refund. The computers are expensive and if it died in 5 days, there had to be a problem that the previous owner knew about. GIVE IT BACK QUICK befor more problems occur!
