That can be a handy feature .. pushing the bike out of a river (motor won't start) and you cannot push it over a log/bump simply use the starter to get you over that hard bit.. not for continuous use though.
And Yes - the cluctch switches and side stand switchs on all of my bikes have been removed.. problems waitin to happen if you ask me.
