question for the experts.
Thanks for the add first off.
i have a employee that has a 2001 vstar 650.
he bought the bike in a modified condition.
here is the problem,the bike starts right up,but with the hand clutch pulled in and you click the bike into first gear it dies...
the clutch is not stuck nore is the cable out of adjustment.
iv searched this forum and found a couple of others having this problem and most were the kick stand switch (and yes the stand was up when this problem happens).
so went to check this switch and there is none on this bike,and i cant find even the harness for one....
here is my question(s).
is the switch on the stand itself (im assuming it is),if not could you tell me where its located.
like i stated this bike has been tamperd with and there are a couple of wires that i can see that have been jumped or tied together.
so my next question is can anyone tell me what the color of the stand switch wires are so i can trace/look for them.
i downloaded the manuel in pdf form but cant read the wire colors and the manuel does not give a location for the switch.
allso,yes the bikes neutral light is on,the bike starts up with 0 problems,idles fine,revs fine but dies when clicked into gear even with the clutch in.
any help from the experts would be apreciated.
thanks in advance
