What is the Switch in the clutch perch on an 05 WR450? I've got a nice clutch lever with decompression switch on my 98 yz400f I'd like to switch on to my new bike before I sell the 98. What's it for?

No, it's the opposite. The clutch switch enables the electric start when the clutch is pulled in and and disables the electric start when the clutch is not pulled in (prevents you from hitting the electric start when the bike is in gear and clutch engaged).

But that is not what I said. There is a different circuit that prevents the e button from working when the engine is running. The clutch switch enables (or in other words lets the e button work) the starter when the clutch lever is pulled in.

In other words it's to prevent you starting the bike with the starter when it is in gear. you'll have to pull the clutch in.
