First- if you know there is a problem with the kickstand, fix that before you start looking other places.
I don't know if that's your problem, but even before I read what you wrote, from the title I was like "i bet it's a kickstand thing".
So yeah- fix the kickstand and see what that does.
As for the grinding, check your clutch cable adjustment. Are you pulling in the clutch while shifting, or shifting without the clutch?
Bypass as you like , all ya gotta do is remember to put your stand up yourself .. Like we used to before they built bikes with idiots in mind .
"Getting on it hard in first " fnaarr fnarr .. and then shifting to second is the change that benifits most from learning to clutchless shift . When really winding it on throught the gears clutchless is the best way to shift .. but ya gotta know how to do it . Plenty info on the net if you look .
I have clutchless shifted every bike I have ever had for their entire lives and never blown a gearbox or clutch yet .
Even if you bypass your switch you will still want to fit a new spring as if it fails worse while your riding along and then lean into a bend ... your gonna know about crashing .
