Kick stand & gear indicator issues
New to adventure bikes and here on the board - hey everyone!
So I got this 2018 KTM 1090 Adventure R about a week ago. The bike got roughly 1K miles and tons of mods, it's a great looking bike and I really enjoy riding it .. when it works :P.
So couple days ago, on a routine errand around town, when getting back to the bike, it kept shutting off every time first gear was engaged, although leg stand was in the up position.
While trying to figure out what's going on, disconnecting the plugs and reconnecting, gear indicator went blank and never recover. Simultaneously, bike refused to start since.
Digging bit further, realized the kick stand switch may the contributing to the issue, so took it apart and was able to start the bike while clutch was pressed and two pieces for kick stand assembly were connected together. However, this connection is very sensitive and bike start intermittently.
Any guidance in the right direction to put me back on the road would be highly appreciated.
