1200GS won't start in gear
So I've been having this intermittent problem for a while but now it's not intermittent but seems to happen all the time.
I'm on the road so simple diagnosis would be easiest for me. I can't start the bike when it is in gear. Note that the kill switch is on, sidestand up and clutch is in. Also yes the key in on ignition.
The bike starts fine in neutral and runs when I change into any gear but I just can't seem to start it in any gear, not just 1st or 2nd. I've checked the operation of the sidestand switch, this is easy, start the bike and check that when I put the sidestand down that it kills the engine. Yep it's working.
So I think that it may be the switch on the clutch lever or perhaps that the bike is misreading the gear position ( this is unlikely as the dash is displaying the right gear).
I've also waited until the electrical system starts up before pulling the clutch in and pressing the ignition switch.
Anyone have any suggestions?
