The fan won't come on until the temperature gauge reads almost into the red.

Fire the thing up and let it sit, idling until the temp gauge climbs up towards the red.

The fan will come on.

Do not leave the bike unattended while idling.

You don't need a manual switch. If you do need a manual switch you should fix whatever is making you think you need a manual switch.

If you still think you need a manual switch you can wire one up in parallel with the thermal switch in the bottom of the radiator, but you don't need a manual switch.
