Hi there!
This is Dan in Sweden, new membrer of this forum.
A short question.
What´s wrong when engine stops when you put it in gear?
It`s actually a problem on a ZZR1100 -93 I (perhaps) will purhase if I could solve this problem.

Hi,
Does it stop or stall ?
If it just stops I'd suspect the safety cut out system.
If it stalls I'd suspect the clutch is stuck together.
Also how many miles ? Has the Bike sat for a while without use ?

Yup, it's most likely either the kick stand switch or the clutch switch. Make sure they are connected properly, and clean them.

Thanks, I will check and come back.
Btw, is there really a switch on the clutch? Inside or on the outside?
Is It possible to by-pass and check?

Yes, it's simply an open circuit or closed circuit.

If you jumper (connect) the wires on the clutch it will think that the clutch is pulled electronically (as if you are trying to start it in gear) but not mechanically.
If you jumper the wires on the kickstand switch it will think the kickstand is up, and let the bike run in gear.

My money's on the kickstand switch. Start there.

Thanks, my bet is on the side stand too. If it is, they have used side stands complete with switch for 25-30€ at Boonstra parts. Or pehaps at a bike Junkyard here.

Yes, the switch is on the clutch lever. You should see the connector with two wires going to it.
