Hi Guys
I need some expert advice. A year ago I bought a 2008 KLR650 with only 9 800 km on the clock. Earlier this year I stopped to open a gate and when I put the bike in gear again, it just dies. The clutch cable was adjusted and a new clutch kit was installed. The same problem pesisited.

What the hell is wrong withe the clutch?

Welcome here.

The side stand switch is probably your problem, the KLR clutch can do high kilometers without any problems.

As Abre said most likely the side stand switch.

Welcome to the forum, where are you located? Maybe somebody can come around and look at and diagnose the problem.

Welcome, my side-stand switch does it every now and again as well. I will be bypassing it ASAP.
One day I will die, but on all the others I will not, so on those days I will live it to the fullest!!

jou clutch het twee kill swithes - een onder by die sidestand - en een bo by die lever - altwee myne is ge-bypass - which means jy kan die fiets in rat op sy stand start... (not highly recommended - anders gaan hy bokspring en omval...) maar dan kan jy die fiets on the go start sonder dat hy in neutral hoof te wees... ook - as hy dalk op 'n paddock stand staan, kan jy hom dan ook in rat start terwyl die side stand uit is...
