Your sidestand switch kills the engine if the bike is put in gear with the sidestand down. If your stand is up and this is happening either the switch is broken or out of position. If it is broken you can twist the wires together until you can replace the switch. If it is just bent out of position you can bend it back carefully.

The FI light is letting you know there is a problem with the Fuel Injection system on the bike. You will most likely need to take it to the dealer and have them diagnose it with their computer. You can check your fuses and make sure they are intact, but most likely dealership problem.

The display is really FI as in Fuel Injection. The fuel injection computer has sensed a fault in the Injection system. You will need to ride the bike to a dealer and have them read the fault codes. It is probably just something minor. Major faults will not allow the bike to run. You will not hurt the bike if you ride it.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

When you put a voltmeter across the battery terminals, you should get >13.5V (typically) with the engine running.
If less than this then your charging system is faulty and your battery will not charge.
See this personally authored thread for a diagnostic guide on how to determine whether you have a problem with your stator or Rectifier/Regulator - inlcuding some cold resistance checks you can do on the R/R to determine if it is shorted.
It was written initially for Triumphs, but applies to ANY 3-phase motorcycle charging system.
