This started about 3 weeks ago and has been getting worse.

I go to start it and it won't start. I started noticing that the fuel pump was kicking, but if I kept trying while messing with the start/stop switch, it will eventually start. During lunch today, I was accelerating and it suddenly stop, so I messed with the switch a few times and it started back up. Is is the switch or maybe fuel pump. Other then that problem, bike runs perfect.

check the fuel pump solonoid, may need to replace, the contacts inside can go bad, if that doesn't work then dissasemble the kill switch box on the right grip area, clean the contacts with fine sandpaper and coat with dilithium grease......

we all catch ourselves gettin caught in the rain once in a great while, but even move damage is done when it's left sitting out in the weather, water will eventually seep into that switch causing what your having.

Any idea where that solenoid might be? I've never even pulled the tank cover off that bike.

Also, the only water that bike EVER sees is when it's getting washed. I've never (knock on wood) been caught in the rain :)

check the connections/connectors to the fuel pump. I had a similar thing on my 929 not long ago. It was just a lose ground. The bike would sometimes just shut off while riding and other times not even start. Lift up the tank/cover and see whats lose.

Do you regularly use the killswitch to stop the bike instead of the ignition switch?
If you do then it's probably the switch that's bad.

I will lift the tank and check all conections.

Yea, I think I use the kill switch most of the time to stop it.

A lot of people have had problems with their switch gear as it corrodes when left outside.

Open her up and make sure all of the connections are clean.
