Help!!

Bikes dies when i put it in gear. The only thing I did was replace the clutch perch yesterday, I also relocated my recifier but bike runs in neutral. I think it might be the kickstand switch?

I would check your connection to the kickstand switch. You may have knocked it loose or maybe knocked a wire loose accidently.

umm 2 wires on the perch would be the CLUTCH switch.......not the kickstand switch. Plug them in and you'll be fine. Doesn't matter which one goes on which prong.

I'm thinkin you need to double check the clutch switch. Since you just replaced the perch, it seems likely there could be a problem there.
I believe that switch is how the bike knows you have the clutch lever pulled when you put it in gear. Without that signal the engine dies as the gears try to engage.

As mentioned, clutch safety switch at perch is likely culprit.
