990 stalls when changing into first gear???

My 2008 990 Adv has been stalling recently when I change from neutral to 1st gear. Hit the starter and nothing. Change into netural and starts right up but stalls again when I put it into 1st. Hit the kill switch on and off and try and start in first gear and sometimes it starts right up and then works fine. Though I have noticed a bit of clutch drag intially but maybe because oil pressure is still building up? A few months back I installed BDCW sidestand relocator and glued a rare earth magnet to the sidestand switch. So thought it was the clutch switch so I closed the switch circuit by soldering the wires together at the plug behind the dash. Maybe the magnet isn't working anymore from the heat of the engine? Any ideas?

Edit: it doesn't have the alarm
