my 1986 VT 1100 dies when I release the start button!
ANY IDEAS where/what to look for?

See if you have power on the black/white wires to the coils.
It has to stay there all the time the key is on or a bad switch connection may be the cause. Very common to have the start switch contacts get dirty.

Clean and check your start switch. Depending on the condition, you may have tweek the contacts a bit.

The push start switch on the right control is where the problem contacts usually are.
