Problems with the kickstand and neutral light on 2002 Shadow 600

My 2002 Honda Shadow VLX quit showing the green light when it's in neutral. It also switches the engine off when I drop down the kickstand in neutral. I suspect it's the sensor there. Also when I turn on the key none of the typical lights show (oil, etc.)
Is the kickstand sensor bad/loose? Is it easy to replace? Or is it something totally different?

The side stand kill switch is supposed to kill the engine any time the kickstand is down. This way there is no way you can take out with the stand down > Safety issue. The neutral light could be burned out. fuse burned, bad switch. The switch is located in the center of the front sprocket. There is a 15amp fuse that protects the oil, neutral, meter and tail lights > Is the fuse good?

Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual.
http://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp There is a service manual with a wiring diagram in the back. The manual is for a 2001 VT600 but only minor differences to the 2002 manual.

Top rating on this solution? Thanks :D

Every time you go to shift the bike it kills. It has a brand new clutch.It is a 2000 Honda Shadow VLX 600


make sure your clutch is properly adjusted. also check to make sure your kickstand switch and neutral switch are functioning properly. if your sidestand switch isn't going all the way up and pushing in the sensor, it registers the stand is still down and kills the motor so you can't drive off with it down. nice safety features.
