Hi mad ad,
Thanks very much for that.
To summarise for those, like me, who may find the video a little hard to understand, if I understand correctly:
If you install a (non BMW) after market clutch lever that does not activate the S1000R microswitches, you can undo the tiny screw and turn the silver plate around so the lower microswitch is permanently pressed in and this will allow the cruise control and quick shifter to operate. I haven't tested this but I assume in this instance, you would NOT be able to use the clutch to disengage the cruise control.

I did this mod a few months ago and installed some RIZOMA levers.  Everything works perfectly.  My little micro switch plate was not snapped in and seated properly so get your reader glasses out to catch it.

Just a tip if not aware, if you do this mod and it means the clutch lever no longer deactivates cruise, backing the twistgrip (i.e. twisting it a little the wrong way from stop) also cuts off cruise.

Gilles FXL Adjustable Clutch and brake levers installed and no problem with clutch micro switches on my 2018.

I've seen the same result here. I had the same issue after fitting my Evotech levers. I lost my CC and noticed the fit was a bit loose. I then straightened the microswitch tang and removed the OEM brass bushing from the clutch lever and installed in the Evotech lever...and not a problem.

Good Luck.
