Bike Shuts 3rd Gear Pulled Clutch

    So I took my 81 400 special for a ride today.
    Cruising in 3rd or 4th gear at 30mph, I pulled the clutch in, and the bike shut off. It turned on easily again, but I would like to get to the root of this so It doesn't become a bigger problem later.
    I ordered new clutch cable to be safe.
    Anyone have any ideas what the cause could be?

    Engine condition or state of tune if it's not cutting off suddenly like ignition switch turning off. Then electrical issue, maybe tied to the clutch switch that kills engine to not start in gear.
