Thanks for the feedback!
I have the kickstand up when putting it into gear, but ive started it with the kick stand down plenty of times without issue.
IT does not lurch forward it just dies instantly like i hit the off switch.
Side stand switch , that doesnt sound to expensive to replace, i hope that is the issue. Whats the best way to find out thats the issue before taking it to a mechanic? I will also mention the dirty carb to the mechanic while its there, im not to mechanically savvy at this point.
The first time it happened i ran it for an hour, stopped for a few minutes and then thats when i first noticed the issue. Its gotten progressively worse since, scared to ride it anywhere far at this point. h
Thanks for the help, like the Forum!
