    What is squealing when you give it gas? If you are referring to the clutch, start by checking the oil level in the trans case. Also, ensure that you are running the proper oil otherwise premature wear can occur in the clutch.

If you're talking about the bike making a squealing sound when you give it the gas when in gear and the bike doesn't move, try checking the rear drive belt.

Good Luck

Pops out of gear

check the magnet on the drain plug for the gear box for metal parts
it is an indication of possible bearing failure or the dog teeth of the syncro drum are worn to a taper and are being forced out of engagement under load
make sure that the gear selecting is allowing full engagement of the gear --adjust as necessary
If all is as it should be then the fix may be a box out and some parts to be replaced

The clutch is not engaging correctly- if you let clutch petal up, it slips (if you give gas it's worse). If no or little gas given, clutch slowly engages after the clutch petal is all the way up.

sounds like you may be able to adjust the clutch and correct the problem, look at the clutch cable and and adjust it some and see if it helps, if it does then adjust it til you feel it is right.

Engine tune ,iac,tps relaced..start car,put in gear,give it gas ,the car dies ..even in park, you push the gas and the car stalls

Cold starts and untill engine reaches operating temp, The coolant and intake air temp adjust the fuel like the choke in older vehicles. The MassAir Flow sensor adjusts the fuel by measuring the velocity and density of the intake air for proper air/ fuel ration. The MAF can be cleaned with CRC electrical spray cleaner, Do not rub or brush this sensor. It is as expensive as it is fragile. Spray was it as thoroughly as possible. The spray evaps fast so no compressed air. It is located in the intake ducting in a metal section of tubing. make sure your air filter is clean and leak free. Good Luck....Ned

Clutch problem

I don't know that adjusting the clutch is going to solve your problem, but the adjustment is found on the lever on the handlebars. There is a thumb screw that the cable sits in. If you ask me, it sounds like you either fried the clutch plates to the point that they just don't grab anymore, or something broke internally and has either disconnected the drivetrain path inside the motor or jammed the clutch so that it stays disengaged all the time. Did you try shifting into all the gears? If you can shift into another gear and it moves, you like had a tranny gear blow apart. Another possiblity is the shifting mechanism itself. Do you really know for sure that the tranny is actually shifting into a gear? You could start by removing the clutch cover on the right side of the motor, which is seperate from the right side motor cover. This will give you easy access to the clutch to check your plate wear/breakage. If the bike is tipped on the left side, you won't even have to drain the tranny oil. Don't forget to turn your gas off before performing that step.
