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.

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.
