Try THIS: Get a 14-16 gauge Scotchlock connector(any auto parts store, they come in a pack, blue in color), lay it across the 2 wires going to your side stand switch, pinch down the Scotchlock connector with a pair of pliers, then latch the connector closed. Wrap with several turns of electrical tape. DONE.
No damage to anything, and in the future you can remove the Scotch lock connector, apply a dab of RTV sealant to the 2 wires whose insulation was formerly pierced by the Scotchlock connector.
