My 2007 1600 Classic shuts off when putting into gear. I haven't been able to ride the bike for a few months, but she starts right up as I keep her on a Battery Tender. Also no problem as she will settle into a idle in just a minute or so. Still warm here in Sacramento.

When I put into gear, the engine shuts off immediately. No lurching like the clutch plates are sticking either. I can raise the RPM's, but soon as put in gear, it's like I hit the kill switch.

Ideas?:

Check the side stand switch as the bike will shut off if it 'thinks' the stand is down and you put it in to gear.

Hope this helps

Yep that would be the place to start, that's what was wrong with mine and now that it is fixed that is exactly what it is supposed to do.
