Hey fellas. Got an issue with my bike that just popped up and was wondering if any one has had a similar issue. Riding home last night I noticed the bike seemed to be sputtering a bit through out the rpm range. Thought I might of been running outa gas so switched to reserve with no change. Also noticed my head light would dim whenever the motor sputtered. Got closer to home and the problem got worse. Got to a couple of traffic lights and noticed my headlight would completely go out upon downshifting. Would come back on immediately after and idle fine at the light but kept on running like this until I parked it. Messed with the ignition switch a bit with just the key on, motor not running and all the lights were glitchey. I've read a lot about side stand switch and ignition switch issues and with what I observed last night I'm pretty sure it's the ignition switch but, I just wanted to run it by you guys just in case any one has dealt with the same thing. Thanks in advance for any advice.

First check the battery & ground connections inc the link from frame to motor which is often overlooked.
