SOURCE: bike dies when I put it in gear

It's a pretty good guess, but there are a few things I would check first. I believe that bike has a wet clutch, so check your oil level first. I can't remember if it's a cable or hydraulic clutch on that bike, I would have to assume hydraulic, but there is a fluid reservior on the clutch if it is hydraulic. As your clutch wears, your fluid level will go down. So check that as well. If it's a cable clutch, then check to see if adjusting the cable does any good. Either way it sounds as if you're going to need a new clutch in the not so distant future so get yourself a manual and study up on changing the clutch. It's not as hard as you would think and it will save you a bundle doing it yourself. Good luck.

I hope you confirmed that you have enough gas in the tank. The next possibility for such a situation is either your fuel filter is clogged. And also check if your spark plug wire is firmly attached to the plug. Knowing the model of the bike helps a lot, so if you are not able to fix the issue with these, please let me know the make and model.

What's your problem?1995 yamaha virago 1100 that sometimes you you put into gear and immediately dies

The Clutch on some bikes will disengage the starter motor. Yamaha will not allow you to engage gear when the side stand is down. Hope this gives you some idea

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.
