Not exactly... You could have to adjust the cable, because maybe the clutch still is engagaing in nuetral. Can you ride it fine and shift fine?
Could be a possiblity tho

If it's truly in neutral it won't stall..   I'd say that ya got something bound up  in there.. Prolly between the clutch and tranny.  Pull the cover and look.

found out that the guy i bought the bike from installed a works clutch perch and he ran the kill switch wires under the claps so they were smashed and when i would let go of the clutch it would short the switch causing all the problems. still glade i took my clutch apart because the steel plates were toast. thanks for the inpute
