Check the wire going to the transmission neutral safety switch, should be located on top of trans with a two wire connector, make sure both wires are secured to the switch. It is possible that the switch itself is faulty or that the indicator bulb is faulty. To test the switch you will need a volt/ohm meter. Set the meter to volts on a scale that will register 12 volts. Connect the positive probe to one side of the switch, the negative probe to ground. With transmission in neutral and ignition on, the meter should register voltage on either side of the switch. If it does, the indicator bulb may be the culprit. If it does not register voltage, the switch itself is probably the issue.

My neutral lite cumes on when bike is hot vn 800

Check wire in harness. Switch is just a ground so if wire is touching hot couldn't light. Unplug switch when hot and see if light stays on. If so wire is grounding.

The neutral lite wont stay on , the foot lever is not allowing it to go to neutral

The neutral light won't stay on because the gearbox isn't in neutral. try rocking the bike backwards and forwards, kick the gears down as many time as you can (at least 6) and then try moving the gear lever up one until the bike moves freely backwards and forwards. Your bike should then start. It would be easier to identify any problems if you let us know the make and model of the bike.

My 1984 gl1200 aspincade will not start, my neutral lite will not come on.does the neutral switch in the front engine cover. if that switch is out will it stop the start botton from working

Make sure the engine kill switch in the off position ?
If the neutral switch is malfunctioning it can send a wrong signal which should be countered by pulling the clutch.

My kz1300 only starts with the clutch in-and the neutral light dont lite up.I checked the neutral lite bulb and its good. anyway to trouble shhot the switches-i hate to just throw parts at it. Thanks,Doug

the nutral switch would be a simple open /closed switch located near the shifter . meaning if it is in neutral the switch should allow power thrugh and if it is not in neutral there should be no continuity.
