    Suzuki boulevard m109r clutch releasing problem

    I have an 07 M109R and it will start and run until I release the clutch. This happened once before and I was told it was the clutches so those were replaced. That wasn't the problem. I was then told to replace the clutch switch on handle bar and that seemed to do it. I rode it about a year and it done the same thing while riding down a highway. Anyone have any suggestions? I tried the switch again but its not the problem now.

    There is a sidestand switch that is supposed to kill the engine if the stand is down when it's in gear and the clutch is released.
    They sometimes are intermittent before completely failing.
    Look for it down by the sidestand. Check the wires. It may need adjustment, cleaning or replacement.
    Don't believe everything that you think.

    I'm confused Easy. On my C90, the kickstand switch will kill the engine when the stand is put down and it's in gear, regardless of the clutch lever position.

    Lever position will make no difference if the switch is beginning to fail or need adjustment. My Busa does exactly the same... clutch in drop it into gear and the motor will quit. In gear while riding if the side stand switch makes any movement the motor will also quit. I had a Bandit that just needed the little tang that pushes the switch in bent closer.

    All makes and models don't work the same.

    Some won't kill the engine until the clutch is engaged (or the clutch switch really).
    Others kill it as soon as you leave Neutral.
    Either way, if the sidestand switch is bad, the engine will die going down the road.

    My S50 required Neutral AND clutch pulled in to start; most only require Neutral.
