Crapped my pants tonight.. Went out to head to work, jumped on the bike and hit the ignition switch.... And nothing!! Tried about 4 times before it started!! Hope it's just a one off....

What year is the bike? I think that a set of bike made a particular time were recalled due to a similar problem
I had a same problem once and.my ine.is 2015 omly a month old i just dine 300miles
Wasn't the kill switch.... Checked that.. My bike is 64 plate so 14? It's due in for service beginning of next month so will query it then :)
Just don't want to get stuck somewhere with no way of getting the bike started :/
The inside of the key switch can get a little manky it seems. Mine did this after standing for a little while. A little squirt of ACF50 or even WD40 into the key slot, then working it on/off a dozen or so times is usually enough to sort it out. Flick the kill switch first to save the fuel pump priming every time though. :)
Thanks Gavin! Will give that a bash in the morning :)
In my experience it always pays to work switches that don't get too much use like the kill switch. Personally I'd avoid putting WD40 into a lock switch as it can gum up the pins. I always use a combination cleaner & lubricant: http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=switch +cleaner+lubricant&tag=hydrukspg-21&index=aps&hvad id=38895735501&hvpos=1t1&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2 006402017820294707&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&hvdev=m &ref=pd_sl_2152shh3df_b
