Exclamation Help!! My clutch isn't disengaging?

hey guys, long time since I've posted. Anyways, the bike has sat for about 2 months and it starts fine when in neutral, kickstand up and down. But every time I put it into 1st gear (yes, with the clutch depressed and kickstand up) it lunges and stalls. So I tried to start it with the bike in 1st gear instead of just neutral with the clutch depressed and kickstand up, and it lunges forward with the starter cranking. I don't know what it could be since it actually cranks when the bike is in gear. I know it's not the kickstand switch, and (I think) I adjusted the clutch cable to where it would have a more solid grip when I depress the handle.

Anyone got any clues?

Bike is a 2006 zx-6r with ~22k

Thanks in advance!

I already played with the one by the handle. Should I mess with the one by the housing?

The clutches are probably stuck together from sitting to long.
Stick it in 2nd or 3rd and start it while holding the brake.
They should break free.

Someone can mess with it.


Happened to my suspension, went from set to super hard. Only way that can happen is if someone messed with it.

Rock it back and forth while trying to shift to second.

Tried it. Only first my friend. I should also mention I'm in san marcos for the weekend. Will be trailering it back to Houston Sunday. Don't think I can make it by Motorcycles Unlimited then.

sounds like it could be it. After a basic inspection through the oil fill hole, I can see a couple move.

Warm the bike up and then try it again.
