For starters check your kickstand switch to see if it's working correctly. What does the bike do exactly? The moreinfo you give the easier it is for us to help you try to figure this out.

This leads me back to the kickstand proximity switch.

You can still have a problem with it whether it is there or not.

I'm with those two above. There is a tab near the top of your stand, when you flick the stand up, the tab presses against a little push rod. That push rod can become gummed up with old chain lube n that, so it may need a clean. Had my bike do that exact same thing a few times now. Good luck with it.

a motor generally needs 3 main components to run: an air/fuel mixture, spark and comression. change fuel filter, check fuel lines for kinks when u put the tank on. coils can work when cold and when they heat/or u ask for more they quit but usually just give out once out. if u can get the bike to keep idling but wont take off, it moreso seems like a blockage. hopefully u didnt have ur carbs eat anything.

As stated above,when the kick stand goes down it releases that tab.Do some more investigating around that kick stand tab,right at the pivot point of the kick stand.Hold the bike up-right and pivot the kick stand and ull see exactly whats going on,or get a buddy to hold the bike up-right and check that pivot point.

:headscratch if he can put it in gear and its fine till he gives it gas doesnt sound like a cutout safety sensor imo.
Thats what happens with that sensor.The second you go to take off,if the kickstand is down or the kick stand sensor tab is out,the bike will shut off the second you give it gas and release the clutch.
