83 Virago Starts but kills when I shift to 1st

Hi, my friend has a 750 Virago (1983), and whenever he now shifts to first after he starts it...it simply dies...It's been sitting for about 2 weeks until we put a new, used gas tank on...Is there some kind of relay from the kickstand to the starter?? Any advice would sure be appreciated...Thank you, Jody

In an effort to eliminate riding off with the sidestand down, most manufacturers have installed a sidestand safety switch.
Make certain the sidestand is up all the way.
If problem continues verify sidestand safety switch operation.
