Replace the side stand switch. When this switch fails, it will cause your bike to stall out in first gear. These side stand switches are small micro switches and often wear out or just come loose

How can my


Stuck in 1st and neutral is correct on a Kawasaki...2nd won't engage until the output shaft is turning at approx. 12 mph. This is to make neutral easier to find at a standstill. If you spin the back wheel to a decent speed by hand then second should engage. The stalling problem when trying to pull away is due to the sidestand switch...it's either sticking or not engaging with it's activating bracket properly. If it stalls as soon as you put it in 1st then the microswitch on the clutch lever has a problem also...

Hi, Kdompe357 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.

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

I would suspect that the float is sticking. Checking will require removal of (in order): seat, tank, air filter box/backing plate, and finally, the float bowl at the bottom of the carb. Insure that the float is not flooded, and that the float needle is free of trash.

My '94 Kawasaki Vulcan will not start with the clutch engaged. It will start in neutral (kick stand is down), but will stall when the clutch is engaged to put the bike in gear.


hi,this might help,without looking at the bike it sounds like either the kickstand switch or the clutch lockout switch has failed,either switch failing will cause the problem you describe as they are both linked in the wiring harness..hope this helps...cheers ian

2001 kawasaki vulcan 1500 will not go into gear


You have found the problem, that saucer spring acts just like the pressure plate on the clutch of a standard transmission on a car. I had to replace one, and it was about $35.00. Good luck

Motor shuts off as soon as I start to accelerate.


Might be a fault in the side stand sensor, you cant go far with the side stand out, or if the sensor has not sensed the stand is up.
