Sidestand switch?

Sidestand switch?
Will look, but does it allow the motor to turn, my understanding is that it wont even turn the starter motor if it is down?

Doesn't sound like sidestand switch. My 950 won't swing (can't engage the starter motor) if the sidestand is out.

Not much else that I can say to help though bud.  :-\

I have to add this:

Was the bike in Neutral? It's happened to me that I stalled, then the bike wouldn't even swing when I wanted to start. I forgot that I was in gear, so did pull the clutch. Embarrassing, but cheap.   ::)

If you're in gear and the clutch is not engaged, it won't swing at all. Not even a click or shove. Nothing, nada.

Check the wires feeding into the coil.  Known issue.

Maybe the switch is intermittent, did you use the sidestand when you stopped the 2nd time?

Might be the plug fouling as well?

My first thoughts are that one of those push on connectors onto the coil has vibrated loose. Check it otherwise you risk the same thing happening again. For such a great bike KTM sure made some stupid design decisions when building it. :(
