The switch on the side stand can wear out or the internal contacts can get dirty and can cause this problem intermittantly. After 17 years it may need a new switch

1897 Yamaha Fzx 750 runs but stalls when put in first gear. Was working yesterday...

Saftey circuit issue! check clutch switch, side stand switch and wiring these are connect to the neutral light switch and the 3 are part of the saftey circuit,
circuit is designed to cut the bike out if the stand is down and you kick it in gear also to stop the bike turning over & jumping forward when you hit the starter and its in gear and the clutch isnt pulled in.

weak stand spring my not be pulling stand onto the stand switch correctly there fore no making the curcuit, switches just make and break the curcuit.

2008 vulcan 1500 runs great till you start moving then it dies. What would cause this? Again, runs GREAT till you let off the clutch and start rolling.

There is a sensor on the kick/side stand. Check it is not faulty as if the bike thinks it is down, as you release the clutch it will kill the ignition.

2003 honda 750 ace, with the clutch lever pulled back when you put it in gear the engine dies.

Check you side stand safety switch. If it is unplugged, removed, or malfuntioning, the bike's system will think the side stand is down and kill the engine when the bike is put into gear.

Why does the motor stall out when i engage the clutch?

It will have a side stand switch, which will kill the engine if the stand is left down, it opperates in conjunction with the switch under the clutch lever, and the neutral light
These side stand switches are small micro switches and often fail , wear out, or just come loose
The switch under the clutch seems to be ok , as it is doing what it is supposed to do, when it thinks the side stand is down

My 2005 Kawasaki Vulcan 750 is struggling in fifth gear, and intermittently tachs high at speeds over 55mph.

If the bike is reving high in top gear but you are not gaining speed or very little speed your clutch is slipping. This is a sign the clutch needs replaced.

Motor shuts off as soon as I start to accelerate.

Might be a fault in the side stand sensor, you cant go far with the side stand out, or if the sensor has not sensed the stand is up.
