Clutch perch safety switch replacement

The safety switch on my 919's clutch perch has died. Honda does sell them separately, but I can't seem to find any instructions in the factory service manuals or online on how to get the old dead switch out of the clutch perch. Anyone have any idea how this is done?

Just use a punch or similar object of your choosing and push it out of the perch

Push it towards the handle side or away from the handle side?

I have only fitted a new one into a new empty perch, but the old one should fairly easily be removed by gently drifting it out in reverse from the actuating side.

If I remember correctly it presses out towards the lever

Just short the leads together... Safety switches are for sallies.

And for people who have watched a bike with bypassed safety switches launch itself off a dealership bike lift when the guy working on it forgot that the switches were bypassed. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt, not interested in seeing that again.

Have you used a meter to check it? Could be a switch full of crud. See my link here:https://www.wristtwisters.com/forums/...itch-3598.html

You can replace it. Take the wired off. Take your clutch lever off. Push switch out "toward lever."

Yup, I checked it with a multimeter and used the usual techniques to try to bring a switch back to life. It's thoroughly dead.
