    So on a hunch, I found some thinner gauge wire instead of a paperclip because I wasn't sure I was making contact. Low and behold - THE FUEL PUMP FIRED UP AND THE STARTER BUTTON WORKED!!!!!!! I...

    I'm not sure what switch you are referring to. Are you talking the switch you have to access underneath the clutch lever housing - the one that clicks when the clutch lever is pulled in? If so, I...
