Take a look at the colored wiring diagram in the 1000 service manual. You'll find a switch in the lower right of the schematic labeled "starter disconnect" I think that's the clutch switch, I haven't chased the wiring out to prove it but it looks like that's what it is. My '76 doesn have a clutch switch and the other '76 I parted out also had one.

I assume you are looking at the Honda manual? If so here are where the major components are on the 75-77 schematic.

If you trace the wires, you would come up with something that looks like my previous posted schematic of the starting circuit. The color schematic is much easier (neither show the diodes well) and I blew it up so my eyes could see it better. And yes, the clutch switch is called a starter disconnect switch on this schematic.

"You love this thing because it\'s sheer mechanicalness (is that a word?).
There\'s nothing they used electronics for that they could instead figure out a way to do with mechanics."

Nice one roncar and exavid.
I was only looking at the colour schematic, so thanks for removing my confusion!
Starter disconnect = clutch switch. Simple enough.
Some mana for you.

If Goldwings were whiskey they'd always be served neat.
