On the key wiggling... I had a similar issue... I had to turn the key to the "on" position and it wouldn't start, I had to kinda back it up a tiny bit and then it would start.

I took apart the puck that has the contacts in it. Gave them a nice cleaning and I stretched the springs a tiny bit so they would help make better contact. Works great now.

When you take it apart though, be careful and do it over a table where you won't lose the parts if they come popping out of the puck. It's very easy to do, as long as you don't lose the parts. There's a ball bearing, 3 contacts and 3 springs in there.

Make sure the green wire is hooked into the neutral switch @ the back of the motor toward the bottom under the exhaust manifold.

Sounds like something in the neutral safety switch circuit. When you let the clutch out, the starter lockout must have a path to ground via the neutral safety switch, or the bike will stop. (with the side stand down) The neutral indicator light must also have a path to ground via the neutral safety switch. There is a green wire that goes to the neu. sw (IIRC, in the back of the trans.) put the bike in neutral and check for continuity from the terminal on the switch and ground. If it's open, then that is your problem. If it's good......follow it all the way back to the JB and test it there. Also, with the clutch out and in neutral, you should have continuity to ground from the Y/G at the JB. ( Y/G to ground represents the circuit from the JB through the clutch sw and neu. sw) Also check the G/W wire at the JB to ground. (side stand sw)
