Arrow R1100R clutch/starter switch

Somewhere on the bike is a switch that prevents the starter operating when the bike is in gear unless you pull the clutch in. Mine seems to have quit on me. I can now only start the bike in neutral, which is a bit of a pain if it stalls and I'm in gear...

I looked all through the Clymer's manual and can't find out where this switch is located - unless it's part of the neutral/gear selector switch inside the transmission housing? Can't even find where the electrical connector is - and it would be great if it turned out to be just a bad contact! Come to think of it I did go through some horrendous mud puddles on our trip to France last week when the gps took us on an unpaved road for a few miles (following 'shortest distance!).

Any pointers please? Thanks.

Found it - it's embedded in the clutch level mechanism...
