Ignition switch issue? Help!! Wtf

Hey crew.

For the last year on my 2006 VRSCR I would flip my switch to IGN and it would only half engage and I would have to wiggle it for the dash to come on.

I took the battery out to trickle charge it. Everything was fine. Today I put the battery back in. Even on “off” the front blinker lights come on, and don’t come off (again ignition is on off). When I switch it to IGN, the head light comes on, and you can turn on the blinkers, brakes light come on, but the dash does not. So it won’t start.

I feel like the MUST be the ignition switch right? Anything I’m missing? I have a video I can post to YouTube if that helps. Please help!!

I have an 07 D-model and a couple years ago I had very similar things happen with my lights,instrument cluster etc. I even had the ignition shut down while riding a couple times. I thought it was related to the ignition switch so I took it all apart and found the contacts very dirty. I cleaned everything up, added a touch of electrical grease and put it back together. I haven't had a problem since. I'll try to upload a couple pics of the dirty contacts.
