! Sorry to hear that Gal Sounds like clutch issues but I am no expert on the matter, give Cajun315 a pm and maybe he can give you an idea of what might be wrong. I believe his shop is in your area http://www.facebook.com/pages/Suzuki...67139863318996

Good luck and hope to see you back on the road soon!

Well this may be a result of the kickstand coming down. Put some WD40 on the kickstand and make sure it moves easily. Sometimes if the kickstand does not easily move, as you are traveling it may connect with the kill switch. So that is what I would try.

how does a kick stand safety kill have to do with a running bike that once put in gear, goes no where?

Any ideas on how I can fix it? Myself? I hate taking my toys to places when I know I can fix something myself.

And it might just be the clutch, because it's been sticking between 1st and 2nd. Like it won't shift to 2nd, it hits neutral first.
well.... it really is a job for someone who knows what to look for and repair. not really a "tinker" job

is it possible that the front sprocket came off? even without the clutch you should be able to kick the bike into gear right? Is the chain still tight etc?
just guessing.

It sounds like a clutch. It is rare that they just quit though. It makes sense if you broke a fiber. Thats an easy fix. If it was worse it would be in the tranny gears. Thats a real . Ask me how I know.

The grinding and chain slapping would give that away quick. That would be a real mess.

if the front sprocket were to come off, chances are the chain would bind and there would be noise or complete lock up.

question. does it grind like crazy when it is running and you put it into first? if not I say it is just the fibers are gone. hence the clutch is still operational, but no friction to allow for power transfer.
