Engine dies when put into Gear
I have a 2003 Rebel 250 and have been riding it a few miles each day. I had taken it about 4 miles to the library and after a few hours I got back on. It started up nicely, but when placed into first gear the engine died suddenly.
That is basically the problem. The engine starts up seemingly very well, and remains running. But When it is placed into 1st gear (or second) the engine dies right away. And yes I make sure the kickstand is up, the clutch, and brake are engaged, and it has been warmed up properly. Any ideas?
