Kickstand Safety Switch

Has anyone bypassed the kickstand safety switch? I was changing out my kickstand on my Vaquero and broke the switch guide. Ordered a new one fro Kawi. It is on back order due to the strike in Cali. Supposedly the strike is over but stealer does not know when the switch will come in. 2 days to 2 weeks. The switch can be bypassed according to the stealer but they do not recommend it. Was going to cut the wires and tie them together. Any ideas or comments? Maybe Ray could weigh in on this. Thanks, Keith

I say that would be fine. I would do it. Of course the stealer is going to say that. They could get into big trouble if they said anything else.
Just keep in mind as to what that switch does.
