Problem somewhere with my starter possible electrical problem?

I'm a new member so I can't post URL's but go to youtube and after the / put watch?v=UHMTV25N1rQ to see a video of my problem. I have my thumb on the starter while moving the handlebars left to right and it will randomly start. Has anyone dealt with this before or have a good idea what to do?

You've got a bad connection/contact somewhere. Tracing down electrical problems can be frustrating.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Since the indicator power remains constant, and the bike does not shut off by moving the handlebars ... I would look at the wiring of the start button through the steering column to the JB. That's where I would start.

Does it make any difference if the clutch lever is pulled in or not?

If not, you have a bad contact somewhere in the ignition switch - starter button - junction box line.

If it does make a difference, then a bad contact somewhere in the junction box - starter lockout switch - ground line.
