You have a clutch safety switch that engages with your clutch lever. It works exactly the same as the front brake switch and your front brake lever. If you are unaware of the switch or not careful, you run the risk of breaking it when you install your levers. Grab your clutch lever and give the switch a visual inspection. It should look exactly the same as the front brake switch behind your brake lever. The switch actually sticks out from inside your switch housing. If the switch appears to be damaged, you will need to replace it. If you installed after market levers, it may simply be a fitment problem. We recommend using only H.D. levers when running stock controls.
