Hi there I am new to bikes--My 125 was going great --parked it up for one day. Now it stalls every time I let the clutch out regardless of what gear it is in. Any help please?

The bike seems to go into any gear ok and will push with the clutch in. I have given big time revs. If I slip the clutch in and out the bike moves as soon as I release the clutch it stalls.

Can you push it forward in a high gear with the clutch out?


What bike is it?

 

Hi --I can its hard but I can feel the engine turn-if I depress the clutch it turns freely--its a kawasaki eliminator

Just wanted to make sure that nothing was physically stopping it.


What type of bike is it?


I'm not to sure where to go with this now, has the bike been running ok recently?

Hi there--The bike has been running fine with no indication of any problems. I simply parked it up -went to take it out and this problem was there. Thanks for your help though.Its a 125 cruiser type.Its a strange fault.

Only thing I can suggest is to check things like spark plug, filter.


It does seem strange as from your posts it sounds like its starting and running ok.


The main issues I ever had with 50's and 125's were things like spark plugs breaking down or getting clogged up although this would cause starting issues. The only other thing was head gaskets going on air cooled 50's and I had one once with the symptoms youre describing. It would run but not pull its own weight.


Suggest you get the bike model and try a google search with the model and symptoms and see if any thing turns up.

Hi thanks for your help--cutout switch? where abouts is this and what can I do to unstick it. Would the bike start if the switch was sticking? Just found what must be the switch. Is there a way of by passing this to see if it is the switch?

Check if there's a cut out switch on the side stand. My 250 has a switch linked to the side stand........if i try to release the clutch and the side stand is down the engine cuts out.........

If you've got similar it could be a fault there

Mine's also a kawasaki so maybe similar???????

I think you are right about the switch--I did not know there was one untill you told me. I am going to try and sort it out.Thanks very much as I was very worried about it.
