Ok I feel like a dumbass. I just remembered that I disconnected the wires that go to the clutch switch. Would you guys suggest going through the trouble to pull those two wires from the harness and connect them as they were just for the function of that clutch switch. Sorry if these are stupid questions but I've never set up a bike for track only use so I got a little happy with the wire removal when I started this last year .

I am guessing your clutch might not be fully engaging and maybe that is why you cannot stary it in gear with the clutch pulled in... hard to tell though since you have palyed with the wiring too.

Can you clutch in with the bike running and change gears nornmallY?
I took the bike off the stand and sat on it to see if it tries to pull away in first gear w the clutch pulled in and it didn't so I guess the clutch is disengaging properly. Also I am able to change gears as normal.

Thanks for helping me figure out the kick stand switch everybody. What so you guys recommend as far as the radiator fans? Should I put those back on? Also, do I need to reconnect the clutch switch?

Want to know what I would do honest to baby jesus?

Get on my bike and hammer the **** out of it for about 5-10 minutes shifting thru every gear and getting everything free, then see if the clutch loosened up from being used, oil when left for a long time can get very very very very tacky and I could easily see the clutch being gummed up and needing to be ridden and having a oil change after, if you put a carbon clutch on it it will drag because the springs are new, and I mean barely stop with your hands fast in fist 5 k later it was perfect.

clutch switch is broke or disconnected if you can't start it in any gear but N.

Yeah I remembered that I disconnected it when I was removing the turn signal and horn control. My question is, do I really need to have that clutch switch connected? Also, should I put the rad fans back on?

Yes on fans!

Also, the whole first gear clutch thing, mines the same.

Can't stop the tire from spinning with clutch pulled in first



Whoody whoody woo!

Ok. So back on with the fans. Someone mentioned I wouldn't need them on there. Can't remember who it was. Anyway, what about the clutch switch wires? Is it necessary to reconnect that?

only reconnect if you want to start while not in "N"...its purely up to you and you're preference.
Fans..i would say yes but im no track bike builder, just what i would do.

That's what I was thinking. I was just unsure if there was some secondary safety feature or function of the clutch switch.

FWIW, my bike doesn't have the radiator fans. So, I have to be careful if I'm idling waiting to go out. You don't need them. But, it's a good idea. You might have gotten it from me in another thread.


As to the clutch wires, disconnected.
