Do you mean a bike stand, that you lock it to? If so, simply follow these steps and you'll be ready to go in no time!

1. Get bike to rack
2. Get off bike
3. Stick wheel through gap in metal bars of stand.
4. Lock bike to rack, passing the lock THROUGH the frame of the bike, not just a wheel.
5. Grab your keys and head inside, your done!

Bike cutting out


Do you have the kickstand up when you put it in gear? Many bikes have a lockout on the side stand to prevent you riding away with the stand down. Kills the engine instantly when placed in gear with the stand down.

Mongoose hill toper mountain bike how to adjust the gears


Use this link for instructions.It is best if you have your bike on a bike stand. If you don't have a bike stand then you can put it upside down with a towel under it. Make sure that none of the wires are being pinched while either in the stand or while upside down.

Bike wont start up unless i put the side stand up


The bike could be fitted with a side stand cut off switch. this is to stop the rider driving off with the side stand down. also if the bike is in gear the bike should not start, this is linked to the clutch/gears. AGAIN IT STOPS THE RIDER FIRING UP THE BIKE AND THE NEXT thing he is aware of is his bike either taking off with out him or hitting a wall or car etc.
hope this helps

Runs without plugwires on shuts off when you put it in gear


Your cycle runs when you pull off one spark plug wire per cylinder. There are two spark plugs per cylinder and you did not remove both . Therefore you still have one spark plug on each cylinder firing to run the machine. Your motorcycle is also equipped with a side stand safety switch. Your bike will run on the side stand . But, if you put the bike in gear with the side stand down it is designed to turn off the motor. This is so you do not drive away with the stand down and loose control of the motorcycle on your first left hand turn. Get in the habit of putting your side stand up before putting the bike in gear and your problem is solved. Read your owners manual.

My bike cuts out when i put it in gear and yes the stand is up


The stand might be up but the switch that detects the stand is down may be bad. If the switch thinks the stand is down, it'll cut your bike off regardless of where the kick stand actually is. IE. Bad Switch.

Motor cuts out when gear engaged


Make sure you have your stand up before you put it in gear. Some bikes have a stand switch that doesnt allow the bike to be in gear while the stand is down. This switch may have been damaged when the bike fell and now be malfunctioning.

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.
