WAS RIDING FINE

Description:

After the bike is warmed up and running, when it's put in gear and the clutch and throttle exchanged, the motor dies.


Observations:

Will sometimes go into gear and run as long as revs are up over 4000.
if in neutral bike will rev fine
in first with clutch out, bike runs fine, revs fine. when clutch is released and throttle opened, motor dies.

I haven't started to try and address this problem yet because I think it may be directly related to dragging 2 cold cylinders around.

I looked over the Parts diagrams at www.buykawasaki.com and didn't see a Side stand switch. Does the KZ550C3 LTD have one?

I'll be checking the diagrams again to nail down whether or not it does.

somebody save me some reasearch! :)

Thanks in advance
