I'm with JLWarrior, check you'r kick stand switch....if it's shot, you might consider bypassing it or replacing it.



I assume you need to pull in your clutch to start it, but if not, check that switch too.

With the engine shut OFF, put it in gear, pull the clutch and try to move it. If it will NOT move with the clutch pulled, you're in need of some clutch maintenance.



As some of the other posts pointed out check the side stand switch and if you need to hold the clutch in to start it, check that switch also.

In addition to the other good advice you've gotten, there may be a clutch switch that is failing as well. They are very simple to test.

It could be the clutch being out of adjustment and not fully releasing.



Another possibility is that the neutral safety switches may be responsible. Make sure your kickstand is up before you put the bike in gear. If that's not the problem, make sure the plug is secure that attaches to the neutral switch on the clutch lever or master cylinder. If that checks out, look at the wiring on the neutral switch attached to the kickstand. If this is loose, it could also be the problem.

Could be the sidestand switch, could be clutch drag.



Does it do this when you rev the bike and drop into gear? If so, then then it's probably the switch.



Remember, there is some clutch drag if the bike has cooled down.



Bypass the switch and try again.
