I ride a 2007 Honda Shadow Spirit C2 and last fall I was no longer able to start it in gear. I narrowed down the problem to the clutch lever switch so I bought a new one and replaced it but that did not fix the problem. So far in my trouble shooting I have pulled the switch out again and jumpered together the two wires that plug into the switch and low and behold the bike starts in gear so I plugged it back into the switch and it started again. So I put the switch back into the clutch lever and now it won't start. I though maybe it has something to do with the actual clutch lever but I just can't figure it out. I asked my mechanic and he said when I figure it out to let him know! I am at the point of wanting to cut the little end off the switch so it will work all the time but I don't know what else that switch does. Can anybody help me figure this out?
