The kickstand switch is either bad or bent out of position. See if you can activate the switch manually. Does the bike run now? If so, the switch is bent out of position. If it still won't run, jumper the wires together until you can replace the switch.

Your kickstand switch is either broken or out of position. The bike kills the engine as a safety feature if it thinks the sidestand is down and the bike is put in gear while the engine is running.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand, it would appear that the charging circuitry has failed. Initially, check the rectifier/regulator combo and its connectors/terminals. The regulator is located behind and below the coolant reservoir. Check for any loose, burned or corroded terminals:
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
