I believe they are to complete the circuit for the saftey switch on the clutch lever so that you cannot start the bike in gear without the clutch lever pulled in. When you have the clutch lever pulled in, the circuit is complete. when not pulled in, the switch is deactivated

If this is what is happening, there is no way it can be the clutch lever switch. check the kickstand saftey switch or a loose battery connection
