Bypassing clutch/starter switch, while still having use of quick shifter

I did some searching and haven't found what I'm looking for. Does anybody know of a way I can bypass the clutch switch but still have use of the quick shifter? I've been wary about taking the button/switch off the end of the cables and splicing them together.

I know one can bypass the clutch switch by removing it from the perch (I've done that), but then the quick shifter is of no use, since that same switch tells the quick shifter the clutch is engaged/disengaged.

Side note - I'd prefer to not go back to the stock clutch, as my upcoming setup relies on a short clutch.

Most simple thing to do would be just wire in an on/off toggle switch for the clutch switch.

Yes a momentary toggle switch is what you need.

On another note I have short levers with the stock clutch perch.

I bought a damaged switch assembly from eBay and de-pinned all the wires except for the clutch switch wires. It leaves you with a stock clutch switch on a stock harness plug.

Was thinking about trying to get a momentary switch working.

I got an easy pull clutch, so the stock perch is a no go.

We do a replacement clutch lever with perch and switch assembly and a choice of long or short lever. Failing that we also do small handle bar switches which can be momentary or latched.

The left handlebar switch pod and the clutch switch are combined into one plug. I just bought a spare switch pod that included the clutch switch (sometimes people cut it off) and removed all the wires from the plug side except for the 2 needed for the clutch switch.

I found a broken OEM switch pod with complete clutch switch on eBay for about 20 shipped. The ones for the same year street triples will also work.

The Triumph QS works if you don't pull the clutch, and is disabled when you pull the clutch. So remove the switch and wire the harness as if the clutch is not pulled.
