I actually had this happen to me, as well. I just bump started while I was
waiting on the housing. The bigger issue, IMHO, is getting caught at a
light or something and stalling out. Could be dangerous! :-/ And indeed,
it did happen once to me, but I was on a downhill and was able to push a wee
bit and bump start. Not a great situation to be in, but lucky for me.
If you don't mind snipping into the grip assembly wire harness, since you're
going to replace it, you can probably put a simple pushbutton switch in line
and tape it in place.
