Hi Guys and Gals, the reverse lock out sensor is on top the transmission under the battery box . There are 3 in a row with 2 close together towards the outside edge and one more alone, toward the middle. the one in the middle is the reverse lock sensor, check it with a Ohms meter by see if closes the circuit when you cycle thru the reverse setting, The sensor gets very dirty and oily in this location, so clean it well, around all the sensors there. clean the wires and make sure they connect well. Hint You can ground this sensor and it will disengage . If you can get in there put some electrical tape on the connectors to the light its the green/ white wire.

1995 900 sp clutch does not disengage when lever

hi,this may help,it sounds like your clutch plates are stuck together,this is quite common on bikes that have been parked up for a while,mine does it ocasionally,i fix it by getting the bike moving and crash starting it,once you have got it running and moving with the bike in the highest gear you can get it into(you can change up and down the gearbox without the clutch and not do any damage)simply pull the clutch lever in and roll on and off the throttle a couple of times and the clutch should disengage...hope this helps
