Never bypassed the switch, would seem that it is more than just a safety interlock on modern bikes

Would have to be a pretty clued up tester to spot that. I guess as long as both the wheels are present, the tyres are OK, the brakes work + all lights function and the horn, it would pass.

i know about the clutch switch and never to bypass it. but i would like to get the bike MOT'd for the weekend.

the switch should be here tomorrow afternoon or at the latest saturday and will fit it as soon as i get my hands on it.

i personally dont think its part of the MOT.

MOT manual: https://www.mot-testing.service.gov....nuals/class12/

Section 6.2.7 basically checks to see if clutch lever can function

Yep.Mine was disabled when I got the bike and the PO has even removed the wires to it.
