Default Help with 94 Suzuki Katana clutch issue!!

hello good ppl;

My name is Antwain Brown I'm 27, I haven't been riding for too long so please bare with me. My issues is I recently dropped my bike due to not properly putting down the kickstand all the way as a result the bike tipped over and broke the clutch lever in to. the only part of the lever still attached was the part u actually bolt to the bike upon picking it back up I realized that with the clutch lever completely broken the bike would still allow me to go into every gear! I'm not sure but i thought thats was only possible if i pulled in the lever. However it wouldn't not crank. granted I've had hard time cranking it b4, i would have to pull the lever allllllll the way in then crank not sure as to why though. So i ordered a new one; got on youtube and google and learned how to replace the lever but even after i replaced it it still won't crank and the bike is still letting me jump into every gear without touching the lever.

Help me please; I told me Girlfriend I couldn't live without her (Suzki)
any insight on this issue would b greatly appreciated

100% the clutch safety switch. It's at the base of the lever that broke off. Jump the two black wires together, see if it starts. Order a new switch.
