Hi.

Check the kickstand switch. When it is faulty it will turn off the engine when you put in gear. The switch is tested by jumping it.

    Hi.

    About the sag, I think that this bike has a reccomended rear suspension spring rate of about 8/9 kg/mm .In that case I would set static sag to about 10/12 mm. Setting depends on the performance you are looking for. Also about tyres, If it mounts 180, put the 190/55.

    All the best.

When i put my 1987 Yamaha Virago in gear, it dies


Yamaha motorcycles of this vintage often have issues with their kickstand switch. This switch can be disabled by clipping the two wires that go into the switch and wiring them together--the kickstand switch is normally closed (letting current flow) when the stand is up; the switch is open when the kickstand is down.
This is more afield than your electrical concerns, but if the clutch plates have bonded together, the bike will stall when you put the bike into gear. The bike will start and idle fine, but basically, you don't have a working clutch, so the bike will stall out when you dump it into gear while at a standstill. You can test for this by starting the bike and having someone push the bike to get up to a little speed, then trying to shift into 2nd gear. If the bike lurches forward before stalling or keeps running, you have a clutch, not an electrical issue.
Folks sometimes get lucky, and working the clutch plates a few times will free up the sticking plates. I have had this problem with a mid-1970s vintage Honda that I don't ride very often. Eventually, the clutch plates free up and the bike is good to ride again.
Good luck!

My 650 dragstar starts fine but cuts out as soon as I engage gear. Have checked the side stand switch and it is working fine. Any ideas?


The side stand switch can work in cojunction with a clutch switch.
It still sounds like a side stand problem, check the wires and plug, use a multi meter to check the switch. If you didnt check it that way.
The switch may work but the stand is not pushing the contact far enough

Does the neutral light work correctly?

Assuming it is not clutch drag with the bike jumping and stalling when put in gear

This problem should be re-tagged gv650.

It's not your clutch, it's the kickstand killswitch. I had the same issue.

If you look down next to your kickstand on the left hand side you'll see a silver switch (looks like a mushroom), follow the cables up to the front end of the chasis near the sump and you'll find a black connector with two wires coming out of it. You can either bypass the connector using a piece of wire or just do what I did and clip the wires, wind them together and crimp them in a connector.

Start your bike and hey presto - problem solved.

Hope this helps.

Engine Stalls when put in Gear, Suzuki GSX-R 1000 K3 (2003)


Most of the safety systems use a diode pack in the loom to stop clutch and side stand switch etc from back feeding each other. Maybe this has failed. If not could it be in the loom, a broken or shorted wire. Look for a tight bend in the route the loom runs and external damage to the tape.

Clutch engaged engine stalls 2003 Suzuki GSX-R 1000


The bike has a sidestand interlock that prevents you from riding away with the kickstand down. That interlock is not functioning properly. Could have been bent or moved, unplugged, or perhaps the relay has failed. If physically activating the switch does not work, and connecting the wires with a jumper does not work start looking at the turn signal relay, some bikes have that circuit integrated into the relay.

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.
