Put a can of " Sea Form " in the gas tank. It's a cheap start to your issue

First thing to check is the battery connections. Make sure they are clean and tight. Next is the battery itself. A weak battery will crank the engine but not deliver enough power to the ECM. You can test it with a voltmeter connected tot he battery. The voltage should be above 10.5 volts while cranking. To test it, hold the throttle wide open and crank the engine. With the throttle full open, the bike will not start and it gives you a good indication of the voltage.
As far as the kickstand and kill switch, the bike will not even crank if either is bad.
