I started my bike earlier today to go home after disabling my kickstand safety switch and the bike would die when the clutch was fully released. I tried flipping diode #2 and doing so made the bike turn over but not spark. I was able to engage all gears, but the bike would always stumble if I tried to ride without the clutch partially engaged.

Update: I didn't ride the bike to work today but I started it before leaving, and this issue seems to have gone away. Any thoughts on the cause of this intermittent issue?

Update and solution: The issue came back yesterday and I was able to find the source and fix it. On the clutch handle perch there was a safety that went bad, the fix was to unplug it and connect the two wires together. Bike runs like a top once again.
