    interlock switch on the kickstand has probably failed. Try taking the connector off and shorting the terminals inside the connector together.

Does this bike have a neutral safety switch? Chances are it does and I think I would start there.Find it,most likely down by the shifter,disconnect it,and see if this makes any difference.Then take a small piece of wire and complete the circuit at the harness and see if by -passing the switch does anything to solve the problem.Good luck

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.

Stalls when bikes put in put in 1st. replaced my batt with a lithum ion one, starts up right away. Any ideas what's happening here and why?

You probably already checked this ... is your side stand down when the engine stalls? Many bikes have a safety interlock switch the kills the engine if the side stand is not in the proper stored position when the bike is put into gear.

Bike starts but as soon as u engage gear shift it stalls bike

Does this model have a switch on the side stand. If so it could be faulty and fooling the bike into thinking the side stand is down and stalling it for safety.

I can start the bike but when I shift into low gear the bike stalls The bike runs perfect but will not run when put into gear.

My 650 dragstar starts fine but cuts out as soon as I engage gear. Have checked the side stand switch and it is working fine. Any ideas?

The side stand switch can work in cojunction with a clutch switch.
It still sounds like a side stand problem, check the wires and plug, use a multi meter to check the switch. If you didnt check it that way.
The switch may work but the stand is not pushing the contact far enough

Does the neutral light work correctly?

Assuming it is not clutch drag with the bike jumping and stalling when put in gear

My 1991 kawasaki starts and runs till u put it in gear it stalls out as soon as u put it in gear

have you got an engine cut out on your side stand?
its a safty idear to stop you pulling away with the side stand still down! (only an idiot would do that???)
(mind you, i did it, and payed the price for it as well?)
have a look under your bike side stand, if you have one pull off both wirers and short them together if this works,, fix the switch!!!!

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.
