SOURCE: switch issue
There are two solutions to your problem. First remove and disassemble the switch housing. Clean and adjust the switch contacts. Reassemble and reinstall the switch housing. Second, tale it to a shop.

Check your owners manual for location of your fuse box. You will probably find connections for accessories. If not make sure you use an inline fuse on the positive connection and then ground to the frame.....Good Luck and Nice Bike!

Not sure what you mean by ignition lights but the run circuit goes through the kill switch, you can try jumping those wires to it. Also your problem as occurred with some friends, was faulty ignition switch which I believe is your problem.

Testimonial: "Thankyou,new barrel fitted. other issue was fuse had fallen out. I thought gap was do to heated grips being faulty. but any way back on road thanks."
well you cant drill out the two bolts there hardend steel all you can do is hit them around with a sharp punch,, but try tipping in the switch some WD40 first and working it in,,it may free off after that
