Hi, Abombtec and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty wiring to any safety switch.
2. Safety switches loose at the mounting point.
3. Faulty kickstand safety switch.
4. Failed kickstand safety switch circuit diode.
5. Stretched side stand spring.
6. Side stand not coming up far enough to disengage switch.
7. Faulty clutch lever safety switch.
8. Faulty neutral safety switch.
9. Clutch not properly adjusted.
10. Clutch plates sticking, forward lurch

The kickstand switch is either bad or bent out of position. See if you can activate the switch manually. Does the bike run now? If so, the switch is bent out of position. If it still won't run, jumper the wires together until you can replace the switch.

A slight "clunk" can be normal but it shoulnt hop..
Could be that the clutch is slightly engaged while holding it in.. Try adjusting it a bit.. Does the clutch engage close to handle grip when releasing ? Or does it engage a bit out when releaseing the control lever ?
If that doesnt help - it could be the syncronizer is failing..

Sounds like a bent shift fork or two. Replacing the bad shift forks is major surgery and is NOT recommended for the inexperienced mechanic. Several special tools are needed. The top end and gearbox get totally torn down just to get to the shift forks. This is a very expensive repair, guessing $2100 or so at the dealers. Bummer. Contact a few dealers to cofirm my view of the problem and the probable repair cost. The shift forks move left and right as the shift drum is rotated when you lift or push down on the shift pedal.

The slow circuit on one carburetor may be plugged. But bad spark plug caps could also be the culprit along with one plug being fouled. Try a squirt of carburetor cleaner in the gas line for the jets. Check the OHMs on the spark plug caps should be 5000 OHMs . If it is higher or lower replace the cap or cap/wire. Either the cap unscrews off the end of the wire or the wire is removed by unscrewing the cap on the coil.
