Yes, you can take one of your troubleshooting jumpers and jump from the relay terminals with a Red wire and then connect the other end to the ignition switch... as a Test. But you can't ride with a repair like that. Motorcycle harnesses operate in one of the most severe environments possible.
You'll be broken down and walking home in no time if you try to repair what you've got.
