Starting Problem 04 999 6100 miles

Strange problem, when starting the bike I can let go the switch and the starter still runs till the bike starts. I changed the switch but that did not fix the problem. Now I notice something new, if it does not start on the first crank and the switch is pressed again nothing happens until the key is turned off and on again, any ideas.

on 999/749, the button should be pressed and released to start. You don't need to keep holding it; the starter will crank until the bike fires up.
As for the issue with having to turn off and back on, check battery voltage, fuses, wires to and from battery.
