I have a problem (electric) with my d/s kit

First problem: can't stop it: either gray button or light switch won't kill then engine.
here is the kind of switch I have on the bike :
The gray button never worked... when I bought the bike used, this button was inoperative. I don't know if the light trick is standard but when I bought the bike, ithe baja kit was installed so that the light switch needs to be on in order to get the bike started. Since I have the bike, I shut it down by switching the lights off (it worked good till last fall).
Second problem: flashers don't work, neither at the back or the front. Not only they don't blink, they don't even light up.
I'm sure every wires are plugged OK. The bike fires very very easily and revs very smoothly. Front light works as it should. Rear light including brake switch work fine.
Can the handle bar switch be down?
The last time I messed with this kit, I had no response at the tail light when pushing on the rear brakes. After changing the light and verifying all connections, it turned out that the switch ( the one that mounts on the rear brake cylinder) was dead. Now I think the switch on the handle bar is responsible for those problems.
What do you think?
Thanks for your input.

Well, you said it all when you said it was a Baja Designs product.
They are notorious for bad electrical design on their dual sport kits. Good luck with figuring out the problem.
C'mon Indy, I know you like Tricks kit more and that the designer of this kit is somebody you know but I would have thought you'd come up with somethig more useful

I'll try to figure out what the kill switch problem is.
