Check that you can spin the rear wheel when in gear and clutch pulled. If so, your clutch is fine and you need to focus on the side stand switch

You have the side stand up when you drop it in gear? it has to be up or it dies when you put it in gear. if it's up and does it then check the switch.
yes side standis up.ive taken both switches apart one on handle bar one under by kick stand. still same thing

Sounds a bit strange you'd have to replug the ECU, however, could be confused.... Sounds more like a sidestand switch issue, is sidestand returning fully to the up position? Not sure what you mean by 4.5-ish........
BTW, what year, mileage??
Have you gone into diagnostics for any error codes? Can check sidestand operation there as well.

Yes - check the side stand switch by measuring the resistance when up vs. down. You should see a big difference...
