Question about Yamaha Royal Star Tour Deluxe Motorcycles

1 Answer

Just put a new battery in and the bike starts great and runs great but when I put it into gear it dies (yes I am using the clutch). Tried to give it a little more gas before putting it into gear and it still dies. I has been sitting for over a year. It is 1996 Royal Star Thanks in advance, Vladimir

Okay.....I think you have a sidestand switch problem.
Do you notice that if you leave it in gear after it stalls....that even with the clutch in it won't crank the starter?
The sidestand switch is a plunger that presses in when the sidestand is down. The interlocks on the RS require that to start the bike...with the sidestand down, it must be in neutral. If you place it in gear which the sidestand down, it kills the ignition to prevent riding off and snagging the stand on the road etc..
So if you had the sidestand up before placing it in gear.....since the bike sat for a year...I suspect the plunger for your sidestand switch is stuck partially in (its been pushed in for a year!)
Find the switch down by the sidestand pivot....have someone hold the bike or support it so you can raise the stand, and spray some WD40 on the plunger and work it in and out letting it snap out several times then try it again.

Starts in neutral w/ kickstand up, dies when put in gear. NOT Kickstand Switch


it sounds like the clutch is dragging,either it is not adjusted properly or the clutch friction or metal plates are warped and acting like wave washers.you should have about 2mm of free play at the end of the clutch lever when its not being pulled in.also too thick an oil in the engine in it like 20/50 it should be using 10w 40 semi synthetic oil.does it try to pull forwards with the clutch in slightly when you put it in gear ?

Why does my 2007 1100 V-star die when I put it in gear?


Hi Don does the bike jump forward as of the clutch wasn't working? If so the clutch is stuck. To fix put thd bike in high gear and hold in the clutch push the bike back and forward with the help of a friend until it frees up. If this is not the problem check the side stand switch it might be faulty. If you have a doubt about the switch join the two wires together temporary to test. Regards Jim...

My 1981 yamaha exciter 185 dies when i put it in gear i've already tried adjusting clutch still dies. was running fine for prior 3 months


The bike will either have a side stand cut out switch or a clutch cut out switch.

Both these will make the bike die when the side stand is down or the clutch is not pulled in

Bike dies when put in gear


Hi Ron, I would check the clutch interface switch at the clutch lever it sounds as if it is either faulty, broken, come loose or stuck. Some bikes have loads of problems with this beastie. Pull in the clutch lever then try spraying some lube between the lever and the stock and see if you can see the switch plunger move. You might have to remove the clutch lever completely to see this if you do then you should be able to push the plunger in by finger and see it spring back out. The whole switch does in some cases come loose if you look for 2 wires going into the clutch lever stock see it the thing they go into is loose or pushed out, normally they just push back with a slight click. When you operate the clutch lever the switch plunger should move out allowing the bike to start in gear. On my Suzuki you have to operate the clutch lever to start even in neutral. Hope this helps

The Clutch on some bikes will disengage the starter motor. Yamaha will not allow you to engage gear when the side stand is down. Hope this gives you some idea

I have a nid 70s enduro 100 it runs great but whaen i put it in gear it jumps a bit then dies it starts in gear as long as the clutch is not engaged im a bit lost ps i do know how to ride so its...


It sounds like your clutches are stuck.If the bike has been sitting for awhile the clutch plates will stick together. Sometimes they will unstick.1st I would change the oil. Then i would place the front tire up against a solid wall start the bike pull in clutch put in gear ,repeat a few times.If this does not unstick the clutch you might have to replace your fiber clutch plates.Hope these helps
