To be completely honest with you I can't really remember if I tried it with it up or down. But I'm pretty sure that it was up. Is it ment to have a sensor or something?

Yes, it does. If you put it in gear with the sidestand down it will kill the engine.

Go soothingly on the greasy mud, for therein lies the skid demon.

Maybe the senor is stuck?? Try 'kicking' the kick stand up and down a couple times and make sure it goes up all the way

Do NOT kick the senor. He will not feed you or let you mow his lawn if you do.

Now that Ive had fun, lets see if I can help a little.

Are you pulling the clutch lever all the way in when you engage first?
Are you sure the bike is going into first, and not 2nd or higher when you let out the clutch?
Are you giving throttle when you begin to disengage the clutch?

These seem like basic questions, but you seem like a new rider so Ive started at the 'beginning".

Can you give more detail as to what exactly is going on when from you start the bike, to trying to get it to roll.


Cheers, we'll try to help.

No temp gauge, the 250 is air/oil cooled. There could be an unused (unlit) temp gauge in the cluster as the cluster is shared with the 650, which is watercooled.

ok. keep in mind its Hard to diagnose something over the internet.

So, in order:

You turned the ignition, bike runs fine while sitting. NO problems with idle or hesitation while idling??
You then sit on the bike, pull in the clutch, engage first, Then what happens??

It dies IMMEDIATELY?
You can ride a few feet?
The engine does not rev at all when you give it throttle?
Does it sound like the engine bogs down under throttle, then quits?

Does the bike fire up right away AFTER it stalls?
If so, is it still in gear, clutch is out yet it fires anyway?
If not, does it fire up again after about 5 - 10 minutes??
Do you smell gas when it stalls?

There are a ton more steps to look at, but as I said, lets start with the basics. Try to answer the above.

Good luck, get back to us soon.

Cheers,

RC
