So my kill-switch/start button is fried. (It's a long story that won't get into at this time)
I am going to use simple push button to use as a start button without a kill switch. I am need to pull the wires from the assembly but I don't know which which wires to connect. I'll get a new assembly later, but for now I am in a pinch and I need to do it this way. I know this is probably super simple for most people, but I get nervous with anything electrical that I am going to do something wrong.Anyone able to draw up a simple digram for me to follow? it would be super helpful.

The start button gets power from one of two sources (black/green wires):

1: Gear indicator in cluster being in neutral
2: Clutch switch when clutch lever is pulled

It outputs 12V to the starter relay via the black/yellow wire.

I see the wires you speak of and I think I see what I need to do. This temp switch will get me home from where I am because I am not going to keep push starting with all my gear and stuff. I'll do a proper repair when I get home. Thank you.

The button wires (black/green) will go to new button. The red kill switch lever is blown out of the assembly, so will I need to connect the two kill-switch wires together as well?

This show what needs to be connected to run and what is connected to start, if your wiring colors are the same.
