Sort of sounds like a Twilight Zone kind of problem doesn't it. I would have the battery checked for an internal dead short. This is something that happens on odd occasions and can happen even to a new battery. Yea, the little lights will work ( they do not draw much juice ), but the starter motor draws a lot of juice and a shorted battery just ain't got it. Also check the wiring harness connections. One loose connection can cause bunches of trouble.

SOURCE: broke and missing kickstand
Take both bikes to a commercial welding shop. Let them remove the "new" side stand and weld it in place. Ask that they reinforce the mount bracket in the process. You should wind up with a VERY strong side stand, better than new. Be sure to clean the weld, prime and paint it also. Rust is a bad thing.
Please rate this answer. Thanks :)

either get a bike lift or centre stand or lean the handlebar against a wall, you will find a spot where it is close to verticle.
leave the side stand down so it cant fall on you if it over balances away from the wall

Test the side stand switch. Use a digital multimeter set to ohm. With the stand up it should show infinate(disconnected) with the leads connected one way and the stand up. Then switch the meters leads around and measure again. It should now read 0 ohm. If not replace the switch. If you cannot find or afford another switch bypass it using a diode connected as shown. Diode(1N4001) can be bought at your local electronics supplier/ TV repair shop. Do not connect the wires together directly.
S = switch
C = connector
Cut out the switch and connect the diode as shown with the banded part of the diode on the bl/w wire.
If the switch did not test faulty then the problem is with the sidestand relay located at the fuse box (in the left hand panel, below the clutch lever.) These are even harder to buy. Bypass by connecting the orange/black and orange/yellow wires together. This will render the sidestand interlock system inoperative and is not recommended if you're in the habit of forgetting the stand.
