Does anybody have any advice for me??

I have a 93 KLR 650 with 16,000 miles as my only mode of transportation. I love it. It runs like a champ until the past few days when (and only on occasion) I shift from neutral to first, without any acceleration, the bike dies. It does not matter what the RPMs are at, as soon as I start to let the clutch out, the bike dies. Does anyone have any advice or info. I just recently got a new clutch and fluids at a tech day if that could contribute to anything. Please let me know

This link will list all the typical mods one needs to do to the KLR. It soundls like your clutch safety has gone bad, typical, this will step you thru fixing that along with your kickstand safety bypass and the doohickey upgrade. Hope this helps some.

Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
