You probably need to short the two wires together in the side stand switch plug,
It can also be a problem with the clutch switch

What to do


Hi,food for thought,if it was me I would unplug the connectors for the stand switch and get a peice of wire and put it in the connections where you disconected the stand switch to make a connection then try starting the bike again,this is only to alliminate a faulty side stand switch,when lights dim its normaly a signe of a doggi battery,all the best hope you find the problem and solve it.

Side stand switch


About the only way I can think of to clean the switch is spray it with electrical contact cleaner (auto parts store)

I have a 2004 yamaha YZF-R1,when I start my bike in neutral and go to put it in first gear my bike dies.After I start the bike I pull in the clutch and downshift Into first gear from neutral and it just...


Hello,
I dont think that you are doing anything wrong. Your bike has a side stand safety switch. the switch is designed to cut the engine if you put it in gear while the side stand is down or it thinks that the side stand is down. There is also a clutch lever switch that allow you to start the bike in gear while the clutch is pulled in. I would check the side stand switch first and make sure that the side stand is lifting all the way when you flip it up. If the stand is bent or dry, corroded it may not be activating the switch properly.
Next you should check the clutch lever switch. Make sure that the connector is plugged in properly. Also look underneath the lever and you can check the plunger for the switch to make sure it is moving freely.

If you have recently added different levers or a sidestand this can be the problem. somne of the aftermarket parts have to be worked on in order to get the switches acting properly.

Thanks and I hope that this helps.

I have a cobra alarm on my motorcycle.I left the lights on and the battery died.now i hav no spark and the bike wont start.can u help?


HI, SOUNDS LIKE THE IMOBILISER HAS NOT TURNED OFF, YOU HAVE NOW RECHARGED THE BATERY, I WOULD THINK THAT THE BATERY INSIDE THE ALARM UNIT IS ALSO FLAT, CHECK THE FUSE FITTED TO THE ALARM HARNES
, IT COULD BE YOU HAVE DISCONECTED A WIRE OR BLOWN A FUSE WHEN REPLACING THE BATERY, RE CHECK ALL CUT OFF SWITCHES, SIDE STAND IN THE UP POSITION, AND ALSO TRY RESETING THE IMOBILISER

1987 honda 600, starts fine, as soon as you try to get it in gear stops, thought was clutch, but with motor off, 1st gear with clutch applied the bike can be pushed easily.... what it can be? electrical?/


IT MAYBE THE SIDE STAND SAFETY SWITCH HAS GONE FAULTY, COMBINED WITH A SWITCH ON THE CLUTCH LEVER, IT IS DESIGNED TO SAVE YOU RIDEING OF WITH THE STAND DOWN CAUSING THE ENGINE TO STOP WHEN YOU SELECT A GEAR, I WOULD 1STL CHECK THE WIRES LOCATED CLOSE TO THE CLUTCH LEVER FOR CONDITION AND CONECTIVITY, SECONDLY CHECK THAT THE SWITCH LOCATED BY THE SIDE STAND IS NOT STICKING IN WITH DRY GREASE OR DIRT, WITH THE STAND IN THE UP POSITION GENTLY PULL THE PLUNGER OUT ALL THE WAY TILL IT STOPS, START THE ENGINE AND SEE IF THE PROBLEM PERSISTS, YOU COULD THEN TRY DISCONECTING THE SWITCH AND BRIDGING THE WIRES LOOM SIDE.TO ELIMENATE THE SWITCH

Why does the motor stall out when i engage the clutch?


It will have a side stand switch, which will kill the engine if the stand is left down, it opperates in conjunction with the switch under the clutch lever, and the neutral light
These side stand switches are small micro switches and often fail , wear out, or just come loose
The switch under the clutch seems to be ok , as it is doing what it is supposed to do, when it thinks the side stand is down

I own a honda steed 600 v twin. the side stand sensor wiring got damaged when the chain came off and nicked the oil filter. can you tell me where to locate the wiring and fix. the bike will start but cuts...


Dont know what the filter got to do with it, but side stand switches are normally closed when retracted, simply wiring the two ends together will give continuity till you get around to repairing the wires which are located on the stand pivot arm, lay bike over and look under, likelihood is wires are damaged around swinging arm area, so you must connect wires prior to break and insulate. PS, disconect battery first.

When i put it in first gear ease off clutch it goes dead


Sounds like the bike "thinks" the side stand is still down. There is a switch on the side stand to tell the ignition if it is up or down. The intent is to prevent a person from riding off with the stand down and crashing. Check first to see if it is sticking. Observe the operation of the switch as you raise and lower the side stand. Often, a shot of lubricant can resolve this issue. If the switch is moving in and out, then disconnect it from the wiring harness and put an ohmmeter across the two leads and check for continuity and no continuity as the side stand switch is down and then up. If the plunger for the switch is moving in and out with the side stand, and you do not get a change of continuity with the side stand up or down, it will need to be replaced.
