Drives me nuts that I have to have both hands free to start the bike.

Any way to get the bike to start with nothing but being in Neutral, Stand Up or Down,  and hitting the starter?

Pity TuneECU doesn't have this ability.

PS:  I would assume simply bypassing the clutch switch would cause it to chuck an error eventually?

Questions been asked and explained several  times. Easy enough to put a jumper on the clutch switch however it does rather more than just enable the starter circuit.
A search will reveal the discussion threads.

Yep, this is one you should just avoid. I believe there is summat like 16+ functions associated with the clutch switch! You could hook up a relay energized by the start button that bypasses the clutch switch, in theory, but that seems like a lot of effort and complexity (and who knows how many sneak-circuit issues) to beat the system. It still annoys me but it's just a Tiger trait for me now.
