    Hi all,

    I'm having a problem with my R15 bike. When I turned on the ignition, there was no problem with all warning lights, which came on for seconds and went off. After starting the engine (still fine), I shifted gear to 1st/2nd position, the engine trouble warning lights was flashing for 1 second and the engine stopped automatically.
    Do you know what's that problem and how can I fix it?

    Thanks for that,
  2. Kickstand down? :)
  3. Kickstand switch if stand was not down, or if you can start that thing in gear with clutch pulled in, clutch switch not in.
  4. Thank you, sirs. The problem is the kickstand. I didn't switched it all the way upward.
    Now I realized how stupid I was :bag:
