Sounds like you have a short in the kick stand kill switch. first cheack the spring holding the kick stand, if the spring cant pull up the kick stand enough to keep that button compressed it will kill the engine. if thats not it take the safety switch off and make sure the button can slide freely in the unit.

Starts in neutral w/ kickstand up, dies when put in gear. NOT Kickstand Switch

it sounds like the clutch is dragging,either it is not adjusted properly or the clutch friction or metal plates are warped and acting like wave should have about 2mm of free play at the end of the clutch lever when its not being pulled in.also too thick an oil in the engine in it like 20/50 it should be using 10w 40 semi synthetic oil.does it try to pull forwards with the clutch in slightly when you put it in gear ?

Engine shuts off when put in gear

There is a safety switch in the kickstand that does not allow the bike to run with the stand down. Could be that it is not shutting off properly when you put the kickstand up.

1991 suzuki gaxr 1100 shuts off when place into gear

Only thought Is the Kick stand switch
Is a kickstand on or was there one ever on this bike? If the switch thinks the kickstand is down it will stall out as soon as you kick it into gear.

Shuts down when put in 1st gear

Most likely the safety switch for the kickstand - it's supposed to kill the engine if the kickstand is down nd you put the bike in gear. That switch could be faulty or a wiring issue with it. Use a meter to check the switch.

Got bike yesterday 105sx 2009..ran when i put it in gear the engine shuts something wrong with clutch? it is not a duke but i had to put it to get assist.

Check kickstand interlock. Kickstand should close switch when up. Either interlock must be closed or trans in neutral for ignition to power up.

My 2000 suzuki750 will not start without a jump. i charge the battery several times. when i put the bike in gear it shuts off then i have to jump it again to start. the cycle continue all over. can you...

Sounds like the battery has lost its capacity, also if you have the kickstand down when you put it into gear the engine will shut off. Try this, put jumper cables on the battery, hook it up to a car that is running, start the bike, put the kickstand up while holding the bike up and holding the clutch in, put it in gear. If it continues to run, disconnect the cables and see if it stalls. If it does, you need a new battery! Please rate this as helpful if it was. And write back a testimonial and let me know how you made out. Thanks Bob.

I start my bike and the engine runs but when i put itinti gear the engine dies. why is this?

I'm not familiar with this particular model but let's see what we can do.

If the bike lurches forward when you put it into gear, you clutch is either not releasing for some reason or the clutch plates are stuck. In the case of the stuck clutch, you'll need to disassemble and free up the clutch pack.

Since I can't find much on your particular model, it appears to have lights on it. If this is the case, it may have a kickstand position switch. If the kickstand is down and you put it into gear, the engine is shut off. This is a safety feature on some bikes. Try raising the kick stand prior to putting the bike into gear.

Good Luck!!

I wonder if maybe the kickstand switch is bad letting the bike think the kickstand is down. When you let out the clutch it shuts of the engine as if the kickstand is actually down.

I have an 03 Honda 750 Shadow. I start the bike in nuetral and then put it in gear and it dies. It dies instantly.

Your kickstand switch is either broken or out of position. The bike kills the engine as a safety feature if it thinks the sidestand is down and the bike is put in gear while the engine is running.
