If I put .0.2uf caps between earth and each of the extra bulbs, would that work too?
The side stand and clutch/ neutral switch are safety features. In 1979 I had a serious life changing crash when I left the side stand down after filling with petrol after work. Then rose off to 1st left corner and unable to bank bike to go round corner and hit car coming other way. Lucky to be alive and a year in hospital. So glad of these features now.
