Sidestand switch replacement

Hi! Too quiet here. Therefore a simple question.
Is there any cheaper alternatives (like a petcock from Suzuki) for replacing side stand security switch? Actually I don't have it. Seems like I will have to add it for a technical inspection.
It would be nice to have one which fits without heavy adaptation.

Thanks!

I found the rad fluid leak on my 800, it was dripping from the filler unit somewhere, so I tightened up a few clamps, I think the leak is fixed, it started leaking after I finished doing the valve clearance checks, next I have to change oil to 10w40 and filter, clean and wax the chain and check tire pressure, I think I'll put in 34F/37R

Minimum 40, 42 rear. What I use on my Nomad. Careful, that's hard, slick rubber. Dunlops stick better, Michelin last longer alot longer.
