Thanks for the add first off.
i have a employee that has a 2001 vstar 650.
he bought the bike in a modified condition.
here is the problem,the bike starts right up,but with the hand clutch pulled in and you click the bike into first gear it dies...
the clutch is not stuck nore is the cable out of adjustment.
iv searched this forum and found a couple of others having this problem and most were the kick stand switch (and yes the stand was up when this problem happens).
so went to check this switch and there is none on this bike,and i cant find even the harness for one....
here is my question(s).
is the switch on the stand itself (im assuming it is),if not could you tell me where its located.
like i stated this bike has been tamperd with and there are a couple of wires that i can see that have been jumped or tied together.
so my next question is can anyone tell me what the color of the stand switch wires are so i can trace/look for them.
i downloaded the manuel in pdf form but cant read the wire colors and the manuel does not give a location for the switch.
allso,yes the bikes neutral light is on,the bike starts up with 0 problems,idles fine,revs fine but dies when clicked into gear even with the clutch in.
any help from the experts would be apreciated.
thanks in advance

I had this problem on a vn800. The switch is located at the top of the stand it has a pin which is pushed in when the stand is in use creating a contact. When the stand is put back up the pin comes out under spring pressure to break the contact. When this gets road muck in their it can stick, I just pullled the rubber boot back and plied it with some wd40 and worked the switch in and out.

switch

thanks,im aware of where the switch was suposed to be,most all bikes have this.
but this one is gone along with the harness where it should be,as i would have by passed the switch.
on this bike im trying to find the 2 wires that "went " to the switch.
i guess what im asking is there a diagram that shows the wiring and the colors/location i can start looking for in order to by pass or find out what the previous owner did.

If you look there and find a lonely connector that's blue/yellow and black, jump it (or is it unplug it?).

Farmalldanzil, am I backwards or are you talking about the neutral switch? Isn't the sidestand connector two wire and located between the cylinders under the tank? I'm just guessing looking at the drawings from the link nick57 provided above.
