+1 on what Mike said.
Also, you should clean the connections and contacts on the bike. Your voltage drop through the ignition switch/kill switch is a little too much. If you drop below 10.5 the ignition will not work. You are at the limit now, so maybe start with the ignition switch. Two 10mm bolts and one plug to remove, three screws IIRC to take it apart, clean contacts and re-assemble.
If you still have the glass fuses, you NEED to replace them with the newer style blade type. There should only bee about 0.1V drop through a fuse. Also, clean all the ground wires and put anti-seize on them. that will help the electrons flow.
