Put the bike on the centerstand and see if you can put the bike in gear without it stalling.

If it continues to stall, then you've got a sidestand cutout switch, and it's faulty.

 

If it starts and runs, but you can't get the wheel to stop turning, even in gear with the clutch in

then it's possible the clutch plates are stuck together. Not uncommon in bikes that have been

sitting for a long time.

 

But also check to make sure the clutch is actually working when you pull

the clutch lever. The master cylinder could be shot, or the slave cylinder could be bad. Either way

you need to check for actual motion of the clutch pushrod.
