Did 2 wire mod now bike dies when letting clutch out?

I recently did the two wire mod and headlight mod. I also eliminated the light green and green/white wires for the safety switches. Now when I let my clutch out the bike loses all power. Ideas?

this is a symptom of a stuck side stand switch.

I also reversed the two wire, same thing happens. I'm wondering if this is the issue? The 3 wires come up to this clutch switch underneath, maybe bad switch?

Sounds like the clutch lever switch is working. It stalls when you let the clutch out.

I'm not aware of this mod. Might be the problem, disconnecting that wire is the same as the sidestand switch always being open.

I can't review the mod thread right now, but the gr/w wasn't originally part of the mod.

Gr/w was part of the junction box elimination thread.

Look at the "blue wire & two wire mods" link in my signature to see if you did the right wires

I definitely did the right wires, but I eliminated the side stand wire according to the "how to truly fix the electrical problem" sticky. What spockster said makes sense, apparently eliminating that wire makes my bike think the stand is down
