And if so, do I just jumper the 2 red wires together to make it permantly "on"?

You need to splice that red wire together. That connects to the brown when the switch is turned on. With that red wire broken, the bike won't get a spark.
The red/black and black go to the LED indicator in the switch.
I see somebody has put in a grease fitting in the steering head. Good idea. One of the previous owners wasn't so bad.

Sounds like it's time to do a leak down test. Have you cleaned the tank and carb and replaced fuel line? Fresh gas? Have you ever seen the bike run?
If you don't have a leak down tester, wire or wedge the weight on the exhaust cam so that the auto decomp doesn't work. If you can kick over the engine then something's wrong. Top end work needed.
