I had the same problem with another brand of bike only starting upon the release of the starter button. It ended up being the ign. Module going bad.

It's been many months but I seem to recall seeing about 70 volts.
The other odd thing is that even with a brand new battery charged
to the hilt with a Battery Tender, I don't have enough voltage
at the spark gap until I let off the starter button; if it's going
to start, it'll catch as soon as I let mu thumb off the button.
It's gonna rain this weekend so I'll tear the seat and rear cowling
off and have another look (street bike).
