Engine stalls when put in gear.

Post by 1auburn1 » Mon Aug 16, 2010 2:20 pm

I have a 1999 GL1500 SE. It stalled on me and would not start up. After it sat for a few minutes it started but stalled when it was put in gear. After it stalls, it acts like the battery is weak by the lights dimming and clicking. After a few minutes it starts like the battery is fully charged. Any suggestions?

Just to double check...was the kickstand down? You might also want to check the kickstand switch.

I had a similar problem on my 1988 GL1500. Turned out to be the reverse switch mounted on the right side was sticking. Would stall as soon as kick stand was put up and put in gear.
