Default Those @#$%@ Safety switches!!!

So I was getting ready to go to work today, got on my bike to drive, started it up (in neutral) shifted to first...about to let the clutch out then the engine died.... over and over again.... after about half an hour of me attempting to go I just gave up.

After looking around online I found out that it was the kickstand safety switch that gave out. and that the cycle thinks the kickstand is still down when I try to put it into gear.

I want to bypass this switch and any other "Safety" switches that could give out and leave me stranded in the middle of nowhere.

I don't suppose anyone has some free time to help me get the switch bypassed? I don't really know what i'm doing and since the switch is still dead I can't really move it anywhere. So for now its stuck in a UAA Housing Parking Lot. Does anyone know how to do this or want to help?

I did the two switches.
it took like half an hour, but thats just because I was looking around at my bikes insides.
did a test run and it worked perfectly.

I feel very accomplished right now

I ended up soldering the connections instead of a jumper. I don't plan on selling the KLR so I just used solder and heat shrink tubing to permanently mod it.

I can help with this once I'm back in town, if you still need the help. Once you see it, it's really fairly simple.
