2011 750 kickstand switch fell off...

So the switch that cuts out the motor when your kickstand is down and the bike is in gear fell off on my way home the other night... The 2 bolts that hold it on were still there, and the threads look to be good, no sign of any locktite on them though so im guessing they just vibrated loose?

Anyone have to remove or replace this switch yet? It looks like a pain in the ass to get to and the toolkit that comes with the bike is NOT up for the task. luckily i was close to home so I had my wife bring me some electrical tape to ghetto rig it so i could get home. I'll be adding some locktite to those screws and also putting some electrical tape and zip ties in with the tool kit, as well as a FULL set of allen wrenches

I ended up removing the shifting linkage and that gave me access to the 2 bolts for the switch. To remove the shifting linkage you need a 6mm allen wrench (not included in the OEM tool kit) and a 10mm socket or wrench.

I thought it was just the 1000's I just had mine done about a month ago but the kickstand feels weird and sluggish when I put it down. :(
