SOURCE: clutch not engaging properly
The clutch is not dis-engaging properly. Cables can stretch a bit. There shou;ld be an adjuster either at the clutch handle or at the transmission. Just take most, not all, of the slack out of the cable.
You should be back to normal now.
Please rate this solution as "FixYa" or post a comment if the problem is still present. Thanks!

Sidestand switch broken or moved? If the switch does not detect the sidestand is retracted it will kill the engine when it is put in gear.

First, get a new clutch cable. Tape the new cable to the old one and unhook the old one. Now you have a new cable and a reserve cable ready for use if needed during a race.
Second, change gearbox oil and install a new oil filter if your bike has one. All the dirt and grit in the oil is binding the clutch. Ride the bike for a couple of hours using the clutch often. Now drain the oil again and put in fresh oil. This will flush out the dirt and grit. Use 10w40 motor oil. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.

The clutch's plates must be stuck.Disassemble them and renew if necessary.The clutch lever should have 3mm freeplay and the spring's bolts should be tighten at 14Nm.

Is something missing in the actuator linkage assembly? Has this problem been there since you obtained the bike? Too much free play at the clutch lever (should be ~1/2 to 3/4 inch)? Wrong number of clutch disks? Are the clutch springs installed correctly and not bottomed out. Inspect the hub and the inside of the outer drum of the clutch. Look for badly worn spots in either that can hang up the release of the disks. Leave the clutch cover off so that you can observe clutch operation (engine off). The outermost plate should move outward somewhat when you pull the lever. Put transmission in second gear and rock the bike while operating the clutch. It should allow the bike to move without turning the engine. If the whole clutch moves out, then there may be a missing/broken snap ring which holds the outer drum of the clutch to the transmission shaft.
