Had an incident last month, took bike from garage and put on side stand to close door. Put bike in gear and it shut down. Had a very hard time rocking bike to find neutral but when I did it cranked and died when put in gear again. Found neutral again and tried to use reverse to put bike back in garage but it would not move. Found that clutch fluid was low. Check sight glass for fluid. Refilled and bleed clutch and it works again, or will till I can replace clutch cylinder kit.

Hi, since its a trike I presume they took off the side stand and left the wires there, I would check the wires and switch if they left them there to make sure its not causing the problem. I think that when there is a stand and it is out, it will cause this problem.
