I appreciate any responses on this.
I have a 1999 Suzuki intruder. It's the 1400 and is in pristine shape. I rode October and November, and it was fine, but now the following is happening:
It will start in neutral with the kickstand down. If you pull the clutch in, and try to go into first gear, it jumps forward and stalls.
The kickstand switch seems manually to be working fine, but just to be sure, I wedged it so it could not possibly be any further in.
I replaced the plates and fibers in the clutch assembly. They are not sticking.
I jumped the clutch neutral switch, and a new one is on the way; no effect, for now.
I'm not sure what else to try, but the searches across all forums seem to be either for dry clutches, or don't really apply to this situation. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
