Default bike keeps dying....NEED HELP!!!!!!!!!

SO whenever i hit a bump now my bike keeps cutting out... also when i came to a stop and went to let out the clutch it died instantly. It runs perfectly fine in nuetral but when i put it in gear and go to let out the clutch it dies imediatly. Grounding Problem???????? i took apart the clutch and the two wires going to it inspected everything and tried to make it cut out and it wouldnt, put it back together and everything seems fine but i know that i didnt solve the problem.........

Check your kickstand switch. Obviously it's hard to diagnose without looking at everything but it sounds like the bike thinks that the kickstand is down, which would kill the engine if you're in gear.

I would initially say check the battery connections, and ground. But with the neutral dependant prob, its proly the kickstand switch, might be lucky and just be loose.

mate i had a very similar problem i ended up discovering it was my drop sensor, it was not perfectly upright because the bolt was loose,
have a check it may fix your problem, it drove me mad for a long time found it by mistake,

good luck!!
