2006 Suzuki Boulevard M109 with 60000 kms that stalls going into 1st gear . I tightened the clutch cable at the leaver as tight as it will go. I removed the kickstand pin/switch and followed the wire up to the green clip and removed it to jump the two pins together (1st I tried with nice connectors then I just exposed a lot of wire to ensure the connection was made at both ends) to loop the wire but the bike still will not go into first gear without jumping forward and stalling. For the three years I have owned the bike if I tried to go into 1st very quickly it would rev high and jump into gear and continue running. All I had to do was let it warm up for even 30 seconds. This new problem started after I removed the bike from storage for the winter and even if I rev the engine and slam it into 1st gear the bike still stalls but I do get a few rear tire revaluations on grass only. From what I can read the tubular nut is the next thing to trouble shoot. From what I can see online it’s a job that requires Rt side faring, exhaust and clutch removal and a special tool to unlock the Tub Nut itself. Also it appears this is the best time to replace the clutch plates and will need new cover seal. This is something I can’t do right now therefore I’m asking if there is anything else I should trouble shoot before I pay a lot of cash having this done? Any ideas? Any suggestions on considering or doing at the same time?
Thanks in advance to you all!
