bike just sitting...

If you've been to the for sale section, you have most likely seen my F2 for sale. The bike is dying when put in first gear, so tried second still does it. I know she's not pretty but she's got me hooked on riding like fat kids hooked on McDonald. I took a couple suggestions for some people and spliced the clutch switch cables. That didn't work, so I bypassed the kickstand switch( think i did it right) that didn't work. If anyone has any knowledge toward what this could be, how to fix it, could lend a hand, or just wants to be a and make fun of me. I'll take any help going my way. The bike will still be for sale if fixed(because i'm leaving for the air foce in late november) but i just want to ride and honestly i feel bad for my franken bike as cederstack called it

Thanks in advance for any advice given.... smart comments included.

You need it. Buy her switch.

But seriously. It sounds like thats the problem.

will the bike start with the clutch lever pulled in and with the bike in first gear? try that. make sure you have a grip on the front brake just in case the bike decides to creep. you clutch stack height might be too high or you may have some warped steels causing the clutch to grab even though you have the clutch lever pulled in.

Disconnect your kick stand bypass and see what happens.
