The neutral light works by grounding the cicuit through the neutral switch inside the transmission case. You may have a short on the wire running down to the engine,causing the light to remain on regardless of gear. Find a connector with a sky blue wire running down to left side of engine....unhook and see if light is out...if it is...inspect your neutral switch...if light stayed on....you have an issue further up the wire.
Your bike has carb heaters...sometimes they are unhooked to conserve charging system capacity...if unhooked at wrong spot...a backfeed occurs giving a false neutral lamp which is dimmer than when in neutral.
Sometimes your interlock relays share the wire to the neutral switch and rely on diodes to prevent current backfeeding when not in neutral...this could be your problem....

If you set your fuel petcock to "on" the bike will sputter when its low and you can switch over to reserve that has about another 1/2 gallon. I just set my trip meter and get gas about every 175 miles to be safe. 2007 VSTAR 1100 Classic.

My 2002 Yamaha Road Star Midnight has no spark


Hi, Jeff orange wires are usually, but not always, power wires and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose, check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil, pick up coil, trigger coil or CDI box testing needs to be checked with an ohmmeter at 70 degrees Fahrenheit
7. Faulty safety switches clutch, kickstand, neutral, off/on etc.
8. Faulty ignition switch.

I have a 2002 V Star Classic that has whining noise in the engine,with the bike in neutral I hit the throttle and I get a gear or timing chain whine maybe? I don't know. Do chains wear? It has 18,000 miles


if the whining goes away with the more gas you give it, you deed to replace you cam chain tensioner. if the noise stays or gets worse when you give it gas, you need to replace the cam chain.
