Yes you can..but how are you going to turn it off when you dont need the light? seems like a hassle to each time when you need light connect it to the selenoid, and to turn it off unhook it...
Anyways..you can hook it up straight to the batt.

Have you checked for a kill-switch problem? I just did, and appears to be a few likely culprits, kill switch, or wiring harness issues. Do a google search for "honda rincon kill switch". First 4 or 5 items were all full of good ideas to research.
Check your fuses first. Replace the light fuses just in case the fuse has an internal break that is not visible. Take apart your right switch assembly. Clean and inspect the starter button. It performs two functions. First, it turns off the head light to send more power to the starter and ignition. Second, it closes the contacts on the starter solenoid to power up the starter motor. Often a dirty or melted starter button is to blame for head light problems. Double check that the wiring inside your head light bucket has not come loose or disconnected. Good Luck.
The starter button on the handlebar is a two position switch. It both turns off the head light and engages the starter solenoid. If it is dirty or broken often you will have problems with the head light staying on or of course the solenoid not engaging. Try taking apart and cleaning the switch. If that does not work you may have to replace the switch assembly.
I had this problem last year. I was told by a reputable Yamaha service technician that I could "jump" the leads on the solenoid to unstick it. It worked. However, in retrospect, I wish I would have just replaced the solenoid, given that it is a relatively cheap component (~$40 new). Since then, I had the sticking and clicking problem again this past March right at the beginning of the season, and during my attempt to repeat the success, I shorted out the bike because I got careless about what my disconnected wires touched on the bike. Shame on me. So I'd recommend replacing the solenoid.
sounds like starter solenoid is staying energized sending continued power to starter. need to make sure you plugged the right wire from the starter button and not another hot wire w/ fulltime hot. also if thats ok need to test for power turning off to solenoid when releasing button. if thats ok try tapping on solenoid. lastly, make sure your positive cable from battery is hooked to starter solenoid, then another hot cable(longer) hooks from solenoid to starter, if you hook long hot cable directly from starter to battery, starter will continueous spin.
