  • Does your R* start/run in neutral with the side stand down?

    Hello all,

    It just occurred to me that every other bike I have owned or ridden will start/run with the side stand down when in neutral. Pretty standard, right? My beloved roadie will only start or run with the side stand up. Not a huge issue, but it would be nice if it didn’t kill it every time I put the side stand down momentarily. Thought about bypassing it entirely but then would lose the safety if I ever decided to be a doofus and execute a left hand pirouette over the side stand.

    -Starts with side stand up, clutch pulled, whether neutral or in gear
    -Dies immediately when side stand extended whether neutral or in gear

    Do your roadies run in neutral with the kicker down? A little perplexed since the side stand switch works and tells the bike to shut off, and the clutch switch works, the neutral light works, but it just doesn’t run on its stand in neutral. I’d love your input on this and what to check and troubleshoot, or if this is just the way they were wired up.

    Thanks!
    Brandon

    Road Stars are designed to start and run in neutral. One of your safety switches is not switching properly.

      It sounds like a problem with the neutral switch. If you are running with the clutch pulled, stand down, in neutral, it will die as soon as you shift it into gear. It will not start with the stand down and in gear even with the clutch pulled.

      I meant that is the way it is supposed to operate.

    I always start my bike and let her warm before riding. I just make sure its in neutral and it starts right up, no clutch and side stand down, gives me time to put on gloves and helmet.

      In neutral, the bike should stay running with the side stand up, or down.
