Sorry, the tranny is the problem. You have a bent shift fork or two and it isn't a low cost repair. The entire engine gets torn down to get to the bad parts. Contact a dealer and get an estimate for the repair. Chances are it will be over $2000.

2008 v star 1100 silverado does it have a stator or any relay switches that could keep this bike from starting


Kick stand switch may be the problem, if the kick stand is down and clutch out it wont start, sometime this switch will play up and it can be bypassed.

sounds like the shift rod is worn its a common problem in sports bikes if they have been shifted a lot without the clutch most of the time they get where they will kick out of second gear on there own but sometimes they can get stuck in second depending on how the wear has gone

1991 suzuki gaxr 1100 shuts off when place into gear


Only thought Is the Kick stand switch
Is a kickstand on or was there one ever on this bike? If the switch thinks the kickstand is down it will stall out as soon as you kick it into gear.

My bike starts no problem drives great but when i stop the bike and turn it of it wont start ihave to jump it in gear and of she goesits a 00 125 intruder lc its been sitting up for 4years veeery clean...


Sounds like the cut out switch on the kick stand. The bike shouldn't start if you have the kick stand down. Check the kick stand is fully retracted and that the switch is disengaging OK. Maybe the stand is slightly loose & its making contact even when retracted. Otherwise check the kill switch. Both parts are available cheaply on ebay & easy to replace.

My rm 80 1stand 2nd gear locks wheels


If your rear wheel is locked up in first and second gear with the engine running, this is not a good sign. Have you ever ran the bike without oil in the transmission? Every time I've seen this, the chain was thrown off the bike and it busted the cases. The oil leaked out of the cases and the transmission locks up. Generally, it locks in fifth gear but it could lock up in any or no gear.

Your problem sounds like something is wrong with the low gear-second gear "clutch gear". The clutch gear is gear that slides sideways on one of the transmission shafts to engage the proper gears. If the bike will roll when in neutral, these may be the only gears affected. If the bike will not roll when in neutral, your problem may be in countershaft. Either way, the transmission could be damaged.

Now, if you're talking about the rear wheel locking up if you try to push start the bike, this is because in low and second gear, there isn't enough mechanical advantage in the transmission to overcome the engine compression. Remember, you transferring torque through the transmission backwards when you try to push start the bike. Try starting the bike using third or fourth gear instead. Standing on the pegs and dropping onto the seat when you release the clutch helps.

After starting my Roadstar in neutral, as soon as I put it in gear, it dies. It reacts to the shift, not the clutch. Is it electrical? Mechanical? I need help troubleshooting. thanks.


With the engine off, put it in gear and pull the clutch lever. If the bike rocks freely back and forth, the clutch is releasing correctly and eliminates mechanical problems. The only possible electrical problem would be a wiring fault involving a gear position indicator (if the bike has such a thing). If it does have such an indicator, find the switch (on either side of the transmission case) and disconnect the wiring (plug?) Try the bike again. If it now keeps running, I'd suspect some form of cross wiring short within the wiring harness. If it does not run at all, then the bike probably won't start and run except in neutral--hook up the switch again. Did this problem start suddenly, or after a repair of some sort???

The rachets in the rear gear cog have gone bad.  Buy a new gear cluster and have it installed on your rear wheel.  about $30

99 vstar 1100 quits when put in gear


couple of things to look for.

1. when you're putting it in gear, is the kick stand up or down. if down, most modern day bikes have a kick stand safety switch which will not allow you to put the bike in gear with the side stand down. this little relay may have failed. its usually located near the kick stand.

2. clutch disks may be stuck together. it happens on my old bikes from sitting too long (over a winter). when i pop it into first gear after i start it w/ clutch lever pulled, it will buck forward and die. i have to repeat a few times to get them unstuck.

good luck

Gear changing in a hero honda cd deluxe?


The gears work like this. Start in Neutral. One kick down is First Kick up for second then third fourth etc. You need to pull in the clutch (left hand) when you feel the time is right. If your going slow maybe 5000-7000 revs, if your going fast 9000-11000 revs. It's more a feeling that you get after riding for a while. Changing down is pretty much the opposite. Rev matching is something you will never stop learning, so don't worry if you get it wrong. Just take your bike out and learn how it feels.,,,
