Faulty and/or missing switches...
It sounds like you may be able to help...
I'm new to this site and to the KLR. I just purchased a 2004 KLR650 that has never seen better days. The original owner would not repair or replace a safety switch gone bad, nor take it to the dealer. He would pull out the old jack knife and start cutting and splicing. When I got the bike home it would run, no key required, just a make shift push to start button taped to the handle bars. After a couple hours working on it I managed to get most things that were not destroyed back in service. The safety switch in the clutch handle is faulty, the stand switch is faulty. And from what I can understand the neutral light is effected by the clutch switch.
What I'm getting at...if I wanted to bypass all safety switches, is there a single location where I could de-activate them with one mod?
