Does the starter crank at all? What about in neutral? Once I have more information i will try to assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

    I am assuming you have the kickstand up when trying this. It sounds like a clutch engagement sensor going/gone bad. I would probably just start it in neutral unless you want to get it repaired.
    Thanks,

    I would suggest if you plan on doing the repair yourself that you purchase the repair manual. They can be found on cd-rom off of ebay for about 10$ and tell you how to do everything you can imagine and more for your specific year and model bike.

My dt wont stat in gear with the clutch engaged?


All the Japanese bikes I have owned won't start in gear unless you pull in the clutch lever. There is a small plunger switch fixed to the clutch lever stock (the part that does not move). This switch is connected to the ignition and starter circuits, so when the clutch lever is closed the starter won't turn. Check the bike starts OK when not in gear. If you try to start the bike in gear and it does not start with the clutch lever pulled then the switch is not working. 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.

My 91 cbr 600 f2 runs good but when i pull clutch in and drop to first it kills the motor why??


Does the motorcycle to to go forward when you drop it to first gear with the clutch pulled in ?
If not then it could be the kill switch for the clutch is not working properly. If you left the bike in first gear and you try to start the bike
without the clutch pulled in the bike not start until the clutch is pulled in.

When i engage the clutch and select any gear the bike will leap forward and stall.In other words I cannot pull the clutch in and start the bike.


If the bike hasn't been ridden for a while, select top gear, (engine off) and with the clutch pulled in rock the bike back and forth. That may free the clutch.

The reason why the bike wouldn't start while in gear and the clutch depressed is so it wouldn't start and jump ahead if the clutch was released. This is usually called popping the clutch without in gear without throttle.........Hope this helps.

Clutch


Hi, you might find the nut holding the clutch basket onto the shaft has come loose, so instead of pulling the clutch plates apart you are just pulling the clutch basket along the shaft.
or if the bike has sat for a while you might find the clutch plates have stuck together, this isn't that rare, you can start the bike and roll it along at about 1st gear speed, then click it into gear, then pull the clutch in and rev the engine, this should make the plates loose again. hope this helps, please rate, thanks, good luck

With the bike in gear and the clutch engage, the


Clutch discs are stuck, put the bike in gear, not running, pull in the clutch and push the bike back and forth to break the clutches loose. Once they break loose start the engine put the bike in gear, hold the front brake, and slip the clutch a little to remove any built up or stuck crud on the plates.
