A little help with stalling

I was having problems with my fan not running after installing the ATO fuse kit. I ended up taking off the gas tank to check out the wireing, couldn't find any problem. Put the tank back on buttoned everything up and bike started no problem. I ran it in neutral to heat the engine up and the fan kicked on when it was supposed to. Now I went out this morning started up put it in gear and let off the clutch just a little and it stalled. It will start in gear, but as soon as i let off the clutch it dies. I got the vaccuum line back on the fuel valve just fine. I did this all following the clymers manual. Any suggestions?

I am assuming the bike is an 07 or older? My first inclination is the clutch safety switch gone bad. Have you by-passed that yet? Also the side stand safety needs by-passed.

I just bypassed the side stand safety switch. I used the connector form the old fuse box since i upgraded to new fuses. That way it looks alot better.

To do the clutch safety switch bypass, do you have to take off the fairing, I haven't looked into it much?

Edit: The side stand switch bypass did it. I wonder why it just now became a problem. I've never had any problem having it in gear with the kick stand down, I've even driven off with it down once. I thought it was already bypassed.

No, you don't have to remove the fairing, just the black cover immediately behind the gauges. It has a philips screw on each side holding it on. For the connector for the clutch, you will splice together the two striped wires. There are only three wires and two are striped. Plug the connectors back together and you are done. I just used a wire crimp to connect the wires together with.

Here is a link with the procedure:
