Give the start switch a bit of a spray with RP7 or similar, this will clean out any built up crud in the switch.

P.S. I think you mean the gauge reads 12 Volts, not amps...

I Agree with Brock. Have a police ST1100 myself and had the very same issue. Spray the kill switch and ignition switch. Dirty contacts possible cause.
