Rode the Turislow for a mere 20 000mi in less than 18 months
Never failed, be it rain, plenty of rain here, or even snow.
Parts broke down, but none kept the Turislow to bring me back home in style and comfort
albeit slowly.

Fixing the leak from the switch took about an hour and half,
including the purchase of a little bottle of clutch fluid.
No drama whatsoever,
No screw were harmed in the process.

The commedia dell'arte started and dragged for weeks
when I tried to have it ordered from the dealer.

People pay good money for a stand-up comic act.

Replacing the switch is easy;
unsolder the contacts, screw the new switch in, refill and purge fluid.

Removing the chain cover to get the switch easy-peasy on TV.
Don't try it at home with the atrocious complex design of the cover on a euro 4 Dragster.

This should not affect Q/S or cruise control operation.
(Unless there is a clutch switch message on the dash. That would indicate a Closed circuit failure.)
Only the ability to start a stalled engine with transmission still in gear is affected.
I did get a message,"Clutch Switch" error message once during the last few days. So, from what you are saying, this is a "Closed circuit failure." The clutch seems to be fine and the cruise control is not working, although it did once for about five seconds, and then turned off by itself.

The bike will not start in gear with the clutch in or out. I'm glad it doesn't while out!

I can not manually turn the cruise control option to the 'On' position, while stopped.

The dangerous lurching stopped when I turned the quick shifter off.

With these symptoms, do I replace the clutch switch or shift sensor?

Clutch switch it's cheaper and easier.

Had all symptoms with a dead clutch switch on the Stradale and the TV.

On the Stradale the miserable failed switch even prevented engine start
gear or neutral, clutch or no clutch!

OTOH on 3 MV's and more miles than deemed reasonable,
no QS ever gave any grief
but as they say YMMV.
