Down shifting then holding clutch in makes bike spudder and turn o

While coming to a stop I downshift like normal and the bike will do fine until I hold the clutch in..while coasting or at full stop the bike will spudder then shut off..i can feather the throttle until I can go again and after riding a bit it will not shut off...people in my area drive crazy so downshifting is needed and it's real wearing my breaks

2013 950 vstar




sound like throttle control valve on throttle body. T.P.I switch.

Really don't know. But I would make sure the idle is adjusted to 1100-1200 RPMs.

Sounds like it needs a clutch adjustment
