Default Engine start assembly soldering break (on the handlebar)

@001 Honda CBR600F4i
So I'd been head scratching as to why my headlight wiring was faulty (not the bulbs) and appeared to have no powerrunning through them. I bought an OEM new front harness as the one that was with the bike when I bought it was a mess from the previous owner attempting to install HIDs, totally failing at the task., and putting it back together incorrectly.

The new harness didn't wrk, but at least my front wiring wasn't postapocalyptic so it wasn't a loss. After looking through the wiring diagram and finding some articles on common cbr problems (a common is issue is that the soldering in the engine start assembly burns out) , I checked the engine start assembly on the right handlebar. I come to find out, that yes it is indeed there that the problem lay. One of the solders had broken off, notably the red/black solder point that completes the circuit for both lo/hi beams.

I have attempted to look for an OEM replacement on bikebandit but couldn't find it. I have no experience soldering so I don't want to try my hand at it in such a small precise spot. Does anyone know where else I could go to order an OEM start assembly, or an aftermarket one is available?

Ok, I found somewhere else with a more complete OEM parts list. Remember if your headlights aren't working and fuses aren't the issue check your engine start button
