Triumph trident 93 model side stand works as it should but warning stays on with stand up john


Hi, John either the switch is faulty or the circuit is grounded to the light that being said the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

2004 v star Silverado 1100. Neutral light is not coming on, can't find neutral, won't start with side stand down?


if the neutral light isnt working the bike assumes its in gear so it wont start with the stand down unless you pull the clutch in ,but it will cut out if you let the clutch out with the stand down.the neutral light works on a simple system it has a live feed to the bulb and the earth for the bulb goes to the neutral switch ,this is only earthed when in neutral which completes the circuit to the bulb.so check your bulb is ok then check your neutral switch is earthed when in neutral,lastly check the bulb for a live feed.

What is the neutral switch for ? and how do i remove the switch to replace the old one. on my 1999 yamaha road star silverado 1600


the neutral switch is to tell you its in neutral and of course stop people riding away with the stand down in gear, it automatically cuts out when the stands down in gear but wont in neutral.it will be down the bottom of the engine usually on the left hand side and have one wire going to it which goes to earth when in neutral and lights up the neutral light indicator bulb.
