Of greater likelyhood is an adjustment of the micro switch in the clutch handle itself. If you test the clutch handle micro switch, with the bike off, put your ear close to the pivot point of the handle. Pull the handle in slowly and you should hear two distinct clicks from the switch, the first occurs as the handle is squeezed slightly from the rest position, the second will occur further in the clutch handle travel. If you don't hear these both distinctly then you have to disassemble the handle and slightly rotate the micro switch on its pivot point. When the anchor screw is loosened slightly there is some free play in the micro switch, move it slightly, re-tighten the screw and test for two clicks. The movement needed becomes more evident once you have the handle opened up.
If the clutch switch is OK you can do a similar hearing test on the microswitch for the throttle cables. It is on the throttle rail and is activated by rolling the throttle back against the stop then releasing.
