Faulty Neutral Switch?

Recently, the neutral indicator light works intermittently. If I am in neutral, it will flicker (causing the motor to cut if the stand is down). The light refuses to stay on while in neutral. Sometimes the light will stay on if I play with the position of the shift lever and center it in neutral. I am trying to get a hold of a repair manual. Until then, anyone know off-hand where the connector is, or what could cause this?

Both the clutch switch on the handlebar and the kick stand switch operate correctly and are securely plugged in. I will check the connector on the back of the gauge cluster tomorrow to see if that is loose. <crosses fingers>

Also check the resistor in the fuse box. I'll look it up on the Manual.

Mine has acted up in the same way a few times.

Try starting the bike, drop it into gear and move just a bit, then find N and see if it comes on then. That usually does the trick for mine...

Thanks for the tips. I've eliminated everything but the neutral switch itself. From the repair manuals I have (for other bikes =X), it looks like most neutral switches are a ground connection that is closed when in neutral with the light on, and open when not in neutral with the light off. Unfortunately, I fail to see the switch or the wire I can test after removing all the plastics. Perhaps it sits underneath the front sprocket cover. If anyone could look up the location of the neutral switch on an '06 I would greatly appreciate it.

Well you said 06... But I thought I would look for you anyways since they wouldn't have changed it from the 04/05.

It is a single wire sensor under the gas tank at the rear or the engine assembly. It almost looks like an O2 sensor or something. I don't know how easy it is to see normally but all my body work is out and was pretty easy to locate.

Just took another look. It sits right in the middle of the upper swingarm mount..

Good Luck.

Thanks! I will pull it apart and test it ASAP. I'm guessing it is just a defective neutral switch, but I will post the results after I have it working correctly.
