Might have picked up a tiny bit of ****.

Loosen it off shove it up and down and round etc. Do it up again. Can't be tight and move

inside the switch gear there is usually a small lug that fits into a hole on the clipon for the factory placement. If the bike is dropped this can snap and allow the whole unit to slip aroud the clipon.
undo the switch kit and have a look inside.
