I know why Triumph and many other manufacturers have installed the clutch
engaged switch, but more doodads leads to more problems.
On all of my other bikes I have chased the switch wires from the handle bar
down into the bike, found a good spot, cut them and connected each wire to
itself. A reversible repair, cleans up some loose wiring running around the
bike and eliminates one more break down item.
I also have done this for the side stand switch. That too will stop you from
going anywhere if it fails. Pop it into gear, dead engine. I have spent way
too much time standing by a dead bike scratching my head only to find that
one of the "safety" items has failed to work.
