Question Running... Hold clutch, put in first then turns off!!

I have a 86 vulcan 750 and when its running it has no problems. But when I'm ready to start going i hold in the clutch engage it to 1st gear and just as I'm about to let the clutch out it turns off. The kick stand is up. It does not do this all the time but recently its starting to happen more and more. Any one have any ideas?

Sidestand switch might be sticky.Try cleaning it with start spray and let it dry.

I'm sure that very soon someone will jump in here with some real knowledge but I'll be the first to try and render assistance. It sounds like the kick stand switch is faulty. Frankly I'm not sure if that's a normally closed or normally open switch (again, someone with skills will follow up) but you should be able to test it by bypassing the switch (either by jumping across the leads or by opening one terminal depending on if it's NC or NO) and see if it still stalls.

Ditto to both of the above. Please post on your findings after you check your sidestand switch. It might be the switch is stuck or it might be loose/unsecured or it might be disconnected at the plug end.

It happened to me and i took my finger and pulled on the button for the switch. After that I had no problems. I went for a 150 Mile drive with some buddies and not one problem. I think I am going to just bypass the switch. Thanks for the help!
