The part of the switch that rotates with the kickstand in under the top piece. Does everything look like it should. Maybe the switch parts got in a bind and broke in the KS up position. Starting in gear without the clutch pulled in may be a less than exciting ride... When mine gets difficult to put down I lubricate.
Take a good look at your switch, probably broken..
