gv650i sometimes shuts off when pressing clutch
« on: October 23, 2018, 08:17:27 PM »

hi guys. new to this forum. recently bought a 2008 gv650i. bike is great, but im having the following issue:

sometimes, and only when passing from 2nd gear to 1st gear, when i full press the clutch lever, the bike shuts off. i almost had an accident today because of it. because imediatly turns on if press start, engine is runing fine. this only happened from 2nd to 1st.

ive noticed that when completly stoped, when in first gear and clutch lever fully pressed, if i rev up the throtle, the bike moves a litle bit. dont know if this have anything to do with the issue.

dont know if its an idle adjustment thing, clutch adjustment thing..etc.

does anyone have any idea?

been reading the forum and noticed a faulty sidestand switch can do this also...can i short the wires and bypass it fine?

thanks

Adjust your clutch cable
Can't think why that should cut your bike engine
Any FI faults showing when it stops ?

nope. no faults. it justs shuts of as soon as press the clutch lever and thr rpms drop. i press start right after, still in movement and it turns on fine. gonna adjust the cable first thing in the morning. it only happens at low speed and gearing down, not when i enter the gera, but when i press the clutch lever...

Is your 2008 a carby model? - I can't remember when they went to efi.

As Spit said, first adjust the clutch cable - needs around 5mm free play - sounds like the clutch is dragging. If it's a carby, you may need to have them reset / tuned.
Sounds like an idle issue whereas when you shut off the throttle at low speeds it wants to die.
