1999 650 Engine dies

I have a problem with my 1999 VStar 650 Classic.
It starts up fine in neutral. But as soon as I depress the clutch and shift into 1st gear, it dies. There's no lurching forward like if I shifted without depressing the clutch. It just dies like I hit the kill switch. It also will not start when in 1st gear with the clutch depressed.

Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
