? identify this item

I just purchased a 92 750, I am working through some issues, but my question for the electrical fellas is, On the left handle bar, mounted to the highbeem turnsignal switch is a button that is activated by the clutch lever. It looks like the button is pressed in when the clutch lever is out and when you pull the clutch lever in the button comes out. What is this button? My clutch lever doesn't hit this button so it never goes in. If my description is crappy please let me know and I will take pictures.... Thanks Tdog

That sounds like a potential aftermarket add-on. Cruise control disengage switch maybe?

There's a switch activated by the clutch lever that is used so that you can't start the bike without the lever pulled in unless you're in neutral. Not sure if that's what you're talking about.

I'm pretty sure that is correct, It does remind me of the same switch that is on the Kick Stand to prevent 1st gear cutt off. Good call Mark.. I haven't had the bike but a day so I havent' had a chance to try the button out. Now onto the Carbs

the cluctch switch is a plunger type and is just under the lever and it should be in contact with the lever at all times. if it's not coming out when you pull in the lever then it's sticking.

Yup, lockout switch; keeps you from starting the bike with the clutch released and engine in gear. If the lever ain't touching the switch button, either the button is stuck in or the lever is way out of adjustment--or the tab is busted off the bottom of the lever, maybe?

Or there's a different lever on there.

It's possible.... but that plunger is about 2 inches long and for it to not touch the lever at all there would have to be a huge clearence between the lever and the plunger. I think it's just stuck in the caseing. Has the bike been dropped before? Oops.. I just saw where you only had it a day. Try to pull it out (extend it)and see if it does.
