The switch can be opened up and the contacts cleaned with a pencil eraser. I did this a few years back and she still starts first push.
Search on method (with photos) that was posted here by blacklab. His bike is a 650 and uses a slightly different part but the method and description was close enough for me to do it to a 1000.
Or replace the switch.

If it is not broken, it can still be fixed
