Question about 1995 kawasaki VN 800 A Vulcan
The bike is a 1995 Kawasaki Vulcan 800 and it dies when in gear. As soon as I begin to release the clutch it's as if the fuel supply gets cut off. I have new spark plugs, the carb is immaculate, there is no debris anywhere in the fuel system and the clutch works perfectly. Any suggestions anyone?
Well, if you checked the fuel system and all is clean, with new plugs , all is left to test is the ignition coil, its contacts and cables

Have you tried the kickstand safety switch? It has happened to me a couple of times. Spray a little WD40 on the plunger of the switch and push it in and out. Dirt and road grime seem to accumulate right there so you should clean and lube it often, especially if you ride on dirt roads. BTW, the switch is located on the bottom part of the frame where the kickstand is.

Clean the kickstand kill switch. if its not getting any power to the engine by the time you let out the clutch and it appears to instantly die with no power transfer, it is the kickstand kill switch. it is probably sticking with too much grease on it. its attached at the joint of the kickstand and the frame with a cable sticking out of it up to the top of the bike.
