Question about Buell Motorcycles
After starting the bike and putting the kickstand up, I put it in gear, and start letting out the clutch, the bike shuts down like the kickstand is still down, after a few times of puttiing the kickstand up and down it runs fine, sometimes after shifting into 2nd and 3rd gear it tries to die out like I've put the kickstand down...Most of the time I don't have this problem, I would like to find the wire and ground it or cut it...

SOURCE: Bike shuts off when in gear
hello and welcome
it seems that you may have a faulty side stand switch. the side stand needs to be in the up position before the bike can be started off in gear. but if not the side stand contains a saftety switch that shuts the bike off when put into gear. to verify this you can check for spark when the bike is being turned over in gear with the clutch held in.
there should be two wires associated with this switch. a green, and green with white. so when the stand is up these two wires are connected, and the switch can be tested as such. thank you.

The clutch lever should have some tension, so could be a problem with the hydraulic actuator stuck, or a failure of the clutch. try bleeding the clutch, or pull the clutch cover off and see if the pressure plate moves
