Wild guess if its a CDI bike

the contacts under the kill switch button collect crap/crud whatever

which tends to be absorbent

One contact is connected directly to the CDI stators charging coils and gets

shorted to ground to stop the engine

IF there is moisture in there, it may be leaking some stator power

across the open contacts to ground.

If you open it up to check/clean it, be careful not to lose

the tiny circlip, ball bearing and spring as this is easily done

Its a guess that's all
