Engine shuts off when put in gear. What's wrong?

Well, by chance have you put the motorcycle in gear while the side stand is down?

Newer motorcycles have a safety switch on the kick stand if it's down it'll kill the engine as soon as it's put in gear, put the stand up and all is well.

2005 suzuki C90 cranks up but stalls when put in gear

You wouldn't happen to have the side stand down would you, cause if you do as soon as you nudge it into gear the engine will snuff out. It's a safety thing.

'06 vtx 1300 c : engine dies when put into gear

You have one of two things going on. (1) You need to check the kick stand switch, your bike thinks the kick stand is still down. It may have been loosened out of adjustment by vibration. If the kick stand switch is out of whack, it will restart as long as the clutch in pulled in. But as soon as you try to let out the clutch it will kill the engine, if it is in gear. (2) Next problem could be, you need to loosen up the clutch cable a little bit, The clutch control on the handle bar has a screw type of adjuster (clutch cable passes through it ), try loosening it till it's easy for you to move the bike without the engine shutting off. Hope it helps and comment if you need more clarification.

I have a 2009 klx 250. i left it undercover outside for a few cold months. now its in a heated garage,it will star, but as soon as you put the clutch in 1 st gear it shuts off the engine. could it be...

The most likely cause is stale fuel. It is always best to drain the fuel from the float bowl before storage of more than a month or two. That way you won't be faced with possibly having to rebuild the carburetor in order to make it run again.
If the engine stalls when you drop into first gear, with the clutch disengaged, then the clutch plates are stuck together. In this case - before starting the engine, try putting the transmission in 2nd or third gear, pull the clutch in and roll the bike forward and backward a few times to free the stuck plates.
Meanwhile, fresh gasoline may be all you need.

Bike shuts down when shifting to 1st.

May be possible that clutch is disengaging when shifting to first and/or drive not fully switched into first gear. Your 1st gear light may be lit, but actually isnt in a ready state.
