This sounds like the kick stand switch is bad or not making full contact.

SOURCE: car dies when you put it in gear

I would check your MAF and the IAC.  Try cleaning your Mass Air Flow sensor which is in the tube that takes air from the air filter to the throttle body (you will see that it is plugged in).  Clean it with some cleaner that says it's safe for a MAF.  If it's not that and what I am leaning towards would be your IAC valve.  The idle air control valve is located on your throttle body and is normally attached with two screws.  I would start with the MAF just because it's cheaper but I'm leaning towards the IAC.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

SOURCE: when holding clutch and putting into first gear, completely dies

whats happening is your clutch plates are sticking together. try tightening up the clutch cable a bit. im not sure if it is cable, it may be hydraulic? if it is, then bleed the clutch to get any air out of the system. if that doesnt work, then try an oil change. sometimes old, thick oil wont let the clutch plates seperate, and you get that jerking when your engine is cold. use a light oil. maybe 5-30 or 10-30. a light oil will make it easier for the clutch to disengage.
