If you can get the whole harness out, doing the repairs on a bench is much easier. Adding protection so it doesn't happen again is a must. Nothing is fool proof though.

If you can be without it for a day or two, I'll do it for nothing and make it where they can't cut the harness again. I've got some stainless cable protection you can only cut with a chop saw.

It's up to you, but adding soldering to you list of things to do doesn't add a whole lot of extra time. Done right, it'll be as good as new. With new switch harness, you'll have to get the filler cap and seat lock with it to make sure you don't end up needing 2 keys.

Not sure about your bike, but a lot of them have tamper proof fasteners on the ignition switch. If it were me, soldering wires is way easier than to mess with all that hardware.
