Side stand switch connector location v7

I have been riding and maintaining my own bikes since 1986, daughter has an early v7, has refused to start today.

Had the issue before where she wiggled and wd40'd the side stand switch and it worked but that now not working.

I want to disconnect the connection and jump the pins to test if switch is the issue, but where is it (before I rip the bike apart)



In case you haven't found it yet, connector is under left plastic cover, below the seat, left of the battery.
I had similar issue recently, but in my case, it was not contacts, problem was with wires that are coming out of side stand switch. It is reparable, but pay attention to wire colors (ask me how I know?).

I thought it is a simple switch, but apparently, it uses the chassis ground at certain position. Good news it that it can be jumped at connector next to the battery to enable motorcycle to start.

I don't see option to attach the file here, but I can send you Side stand section as an image or complete service manual in pdf it you need one.
