Here's what I discovered this morning.
In neutral
Handlebar moved side to side, no issues (this morning)
Clutch lever moved in and out slowly, no issue

Same set up, but, KICKSTAND DOWN
Slowly pull the clutch and the engine cuts off..
Quickly pull the clutch, no issue.

I've cleaned the cut off switch and clutch switch. No changes

Any ideas.


PHP Code:
Kick stand switch .... bypass it
Oops....brain did not consider "Neutral" gear
PHP Code:
Clutch switch... clean again 
Oops....brain did not consider "Neutral" gear

Handlebar issue: Check/Clean wire harness "connectors" under neck covers.
