Not sure how to test the clutch to be honest. To start the engine, I engage the choke lever on the carb, hold the clutch lever on the left handlebar, give it some gas with the twist grip and then kick down on the pedal. And yes, I have the engine cut off switch set to the "off position".

If by the "right cover" you mean the one on the trans, opposite of the clutch then I havent popped that side open yet.

I actually have two bulbs on the back of my Safari. I inspected both earlier and the filament inside wasnt broken. But I might just bridge the two connections for the time being to eliminate the bulb being the issue. I might swing by the store to pick up a new bulb regardless though.
