Check kickstand interlock. Kickstand should close switch when up. Either interlock must be closed or trans in neutral for ignition to power up.

2009 Suzuki Boulevard c-50 Engine? Or ??? Strange very loud noise!


probably detonation or uncontrolled or spontaneous combustion
it is caused by incorrect air /fuel ratio or incorrect timing
after washing it water could be shorting out a sensor wire / connection causing the oxygen sensors or ecm from operating properly
take it to a bike service center and have it properly diagnosed

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.

06 Road King Classice shuts off when in 4th gear beloe 50mph


It's normal for the check engine light to take from 0 to a couple seconds to turn off. The computer runs a system check. Put an oil pressure gauge on the bike and watch it closely. If your pressure drops when the bike loses power, the engine may be locking up from lack of oil. Another possibility is your lean-angle cut-off switch is defective. The switch cuts power to the bike in case you lay it down. Harley also has had problems with their fuel injection system losing power for no apparent reason.

Car shutting off when put in gear


If the clutch assembly of the car is damaged or has wearied out. It may cause problem to put the gears. The best solution is to replace the clutch assembly.

I hope this will solve your issue.
Good Luck.

If my solution proves useful please accept it.

Bike shuts off when in gear


hello and welcome
it seems that you may have a faulty side stand switch. the side stand needs to be in the up position before the bike can be started off in gear. but if not the side stand contains a saftety switch that shuts the bike off when put into gear. to verify this you can check for spark when the bike is being turned over in gear with the clutch held in.
there should be two wires associated with this switch. a green, and green with white. so when the stand is up these two wires are connected, and the switch can be tested as such. thank you.

Stalling problem from neutral to first gear


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, if the bike will be run without its own battery, the engine will really stall. This is because there will be no consumer for the voltage output other than the ignition system which will clamp down when the engine is revved and the voltage tends to go higher still.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Engine dying


Check your kick stand sensor if it's unplugged then there is your problem. If it's still plugged in then the sensor might be gone. The sensor shuts the bike down if you try to take off when the kick stand is down. you can bypass the sensor by jumping the two wires before the sensor with a piece of wire connecting the two leads together. doing so will allow the bike to be put into gear with the kick stand down so always check it so you won't have an accident.

Stuck in gear


ry useing blue LOCTITE on the pinch bolts and other fasteners to keep the shifter from vibrating loose again. I had the shift linkage vibrate loose on my Thruxton when it was new, I had to fix it on the road to get home.
