Question about 2008 Yamaha Yamaha G5
If the engine dies completely when you put in gear, check the kickstand switch. This can be tested jumping its contacts, the problem should disappear.
If instead the bike is running only with choke on, that is a carburetor problem. Check mixture regulation, eventually check fuel filter, air filter and fuel lines and clean the carburetor body.
This bike is known for having very lean settings from factory (carburetor mixing little fuel and more air). Read this article on the G5 carb problem.
