Try a jump start. Maybe the battery needs a full charge and load tested.

I also have this issue with the occasional bout of the gear sensor being undecided which gear the bike is in on my 2012 650 - would love a suggestion as to where on earth I find the offending connector (being a mechanical Luddite).
The gear sensor plays up when it’s wet ie in the rain and would love a resolution before a winter of wet riding in the uk

Britcat, the gear connector is just above the front sprocket cover, behind the frame triangle. A good clean followed by some ACF50 in there should see you right for the UK winter.
If you haven't already, I'd also recommend you lift the tank and airbox, and do the same to the connectors above the radiator including covering them with pieces of innertube to keep the salt water out.
