Default Bike turns off when I put in 1st or 2nd gear

I have a 2000 Suzuki GSXR600. Me and some of my friends were doing burnouts. I did couple of burnouts and then my clutch handle was very free so I figured I need to urgent my clutch which I did and now when I start my bike and put it in 1st or 2nd gear the bike jumps and shuts off, I am still holding the clutch and the wants to take off. I don't know whats wrong, Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Take your bike and about $600 to your nearby Suzuki dealer. Tell them you need a new clutch.

Wait, cancel that. Use your car to ride to Lowes, Home Depot, or a similar store in your area. Take $5 along and buy a "FOR SALE" sign. Park the bike in front of your house. Securely fasten the sign to the handlebars. Hand-write the words: "Handy-Man Special" on the bottom of the sign.

First off, WTF is "urgent"-ing a clutch?

Secondly, you've broken something internally. Probably expensive, too. Sucks to be you; but if one beats a horse long and harshly-enough, one should not be surprised when it falls-over Dead.

If you have money - take it to a Dealer. Tell them how you broke it. Give them all your money. Pick up the now-fixed motorcycle, and do it all again.

If you DO NOT have money - steal/pirate a manual. Tear-down the bike in your driveway, ensuring you scatter parts in no-particular order. When you can no-longer stand to kick the parts out of the way; place an ad on Craigslist detailing a "fixxer-upper" for approximately $1139.82 over book-value of a clean, well-maintained example of the breed. After you're finished being mocked, sell the whole mess to a mechanically-inclined, masochistic friend for $50. Take out a loan on a new Gixxer...........

It's similar to an "urgent need to urinate." You're trying to go, but it just won't get moving.

Ummmmmm. Those bikes are not dirt bikes. Your's was not designed for the sort of abuse you just put it through. You've probably warped the clutch plates and perhaps the basket. God only knows what you are doing to the shift forks and tranny dogs as well.

With luck you can get away with a new set of clutch and spacer plates. Unless you have hundreds of $ to throw away, get a manual, remove the plastic and remove the clutch-housing. Follow the instructions in the manual. Good luck.

Good Luck indeed and congradulations on passing the real world test of "I beat the crap out of my bike and now it don't work" with any luck the lesson won't cost too much..

Cool

Check the easy things first! I would check the clutch adjustment on your left hand handlebar. Turn it out until it takes up the slack. When you cant turn it anymore you'll either need a new cable or try to adjust it out more on the bottom where it goes into the case! If its none of these things you'll need to check the components to your clutch.

More than likely you have burnt your clutch up. before replacing,try the following
1. inspect clutch....if it dont appear broke then goto 3.
2. Adjust clutch
3 get bike to top of hill in neutra.Pull in clutch. Push bike down hill.at about 5 mph, put into first. if bike throws you,this was bad idea. If not ,and bike motivates, ride around for awhile (AT SLOW SPEED) with clutch still pulled in. If the clutch plates are merely stuck together,this may loosen them. probably not...the clutch is probably fried.
