Is the sidestand down? These bikes have a kill switch in the sidestand that will kill the engine if it is down and you put the bike in gear. If the sidestand is not down, you may have a bad or stuck safety switch.
Replace the switch if possible. If not, check for continuity when the stand is up and down. It should change. The system is looking for the "up" condition. If the switch has continuity with the stand up, short the switch wires together. If there is no continuity with the stand up, disconnect the switch. The lack of a sidestand switch can be dangerous. Have it repaired properly asap.
Steve. While I would never tell anyone to bypass a safety switch. You can usually pull it off and wrap it in electrical tape. That way you are not riding while trying to hold it down. Sometimes you can jump the wires across each other to bypass the switch too. But it depends if the switch is a closed or open switch.
hi...put kickstand up 1st befor putting in gear....as this how bigger hondas work its a safety thing so u carnt ride off with side stand down...but cuts engine if kickstand still down & then wont start as you in gear.....even if kickstand up wont start in gear!!...hope this helps
Sidestand must be retracted and sidestand switch functioning or the engine dies as a safety feature to keep you from riding off with the sidestand down. If the sidestand is up and it still dies, disconnect the sidestand switch and put a jumper in there. If the problem goes away, your switch is faulty.
