Most likely the kickstand switch or the kickstand relay, it's a Nerf feature that's supposed to kill the engine if you shift into gear with the kickstand down.

The switch is on the frame at the kickstand, the relay is most likely hanging from the frame under the fuel tank. If he's lucky, unplugging the relay will let the engine run but the warning light will come on.
