Make sure the clutch fluid reservoir on the handlebar is full of dot3/4 brake fluid and bleed the clutch slave cylinder to get the air out. If you can not build pressure or lose pressure after bleeding, replace the seals in the master and slave and bleed again.

Have ttr50 2008, starts in gear, doesn't shift properly. you did not list a TTR50 so I picked the TTR125, could you still answer my questions on a TTR50 thanks!

If the bike starts when it is in gear that would indicate that the clutch switch is sticking/broken? It is located between the clutch lever and the clutch lever assembly, normally a plastic bullet shaped switch with a switch that is depressed when the clutch lever is not engaged and released when the clutch lever is pulled in. The not shifting could be down to the chain not adjusted for freeplay correctly, also lub the gear change shaft. If the chain is adjusted then check freeplay on the clutch lever normally about 10mm, but check with your handbook.

Hi, I have recently bought my Mrs a cbr 125r. The bike only starts in neutral. When in gear and the clutch is pulled in, the bike wont start. I disconnected the connectors to the clutch lever switch and...

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.

I know that the bike will only start in neutral with the stand down, but the same is true when the stand is up. Why won't it start in gear with the clutch lever depressed?

You probably have a defective clutch safety switch or it would start in gear when you pull the clutch lever like every other Honda made in the last 30 years.

Check the fluid level on your clutch slave cylinder. Have someone depress the clutch while visually observing the movement of the levers under the hood. Could also be a bad throwout bearing.

Mitsibishi colt 97 stuck in 1st gear

Your link broke off. What might have happened is the car got stuck in 1st, and when you shifted to second, the link broke. Not too clued up on your car, but you probably need to drop the gearbox. On some cars you can take out the shifter without having to drop the box and still see if the link is broken. Good luck
