Starts with side stand down if in neutral, not if it's in gear - check the side stand safety switch?

forgot to mention while on neutral does not start and of course while on whatever gear also does not start! it is not of a serious problem for me because either way i didn't crank the bike up while on side stand never! just asking because a friend of mine ones came with the same bike and told me that! the safety switch does work as it should ( checked it )

Mine also starts on the side stand when in neutral. 

So what happens when your bike is still running and you extend your sidestand while in neutral?

if still running and extend it nothing happens...if i step to first gear, with extended stand, it stops immediately

So, your sidestand safety switch is operating normally when the engine is running, but malfunctions when the engine is turned off.

That is very puzzling.

Are you 100% certain that you are in neutral when you try to start the engine with the sidestand down?
