81 750 stalls when shifting into first gear

PostAuthor: 81750classic » Mon Jun 14, 2021 9:16 am

My bike starts fine but upon warm up it stalls when shifting into first gear. Needless to say there has not been much riding lately. I fooled around with the kickstand switch but the problem still exists. Any thoughts? 1981 XV 750 Virago.

Cut the wires to the switch, left enough at the switch to rejoin later. Bug the two wires together, bypassing the switch, see if that works.
