That is a tough one. To start, I think we need to check battery connections and ground. Make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight and make sure the ground wire that goes from the battery to the engine block is clean and tight. Let me know what you find.

Could it be the clutch safety switch?

The safety switch wouldn't cause the lights to flicker.
