Bike keeps dieing

I have a 2008 Vulcan 900. Yesterday I was out riding. I pulled up to a redlight and the bike just died. It was like someone flipped the kill switch. I tried to restart and nothing. All the lights were on but nothing> I turned the key off and the bike refired when I tried again. I took off and at the next light the same thing happened. I got home and tried to get it to die like it had before and it wouldn't die. I let the kick stand down, while it was still running and it kept running while in gear with the stand down. So now I think it must be something wrong with saftey device on the kickstand? Has anyone else had this problem? Is it a fix that I could tackle or do I need to take it to the shop? Oh yea now it will only crank if I have it in Neutral....

NO SLACK!

Yup, sounds like one of your wires is undone. Try looking at the plug on the Clutch as well as the one on your kickstand.
