Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Neutral light bulb burnt out.
2. Faulty neutral switch.
3. A loose bulb in the socket.
4. Faulty wiring from the neutral switch to the light.
5. If the neutral light stays on while the bike is in gear the wire from the light to the neutral switch is grounded.

SOURCE: noise clutch at idle and I have the bike in neutral

here is a good related post from another user i came across with:

When I bought my star 1300 I noticed that the clutch was making quite a racket. So I took in to the dealer, and they told me that it was normal. Well after a year that dealership had sold, and the new dealer checked into the noise problem that I had been hearing. Anyways what they found out was that Yamaha knew about the noise, and had a retro kit that fixes this. It consists of new bearings a couple of gears, and the whole clutch basket. I was told that there isn't a recall on the 07's. But if you complain, they will fix and replace the parts for free. I saw that the parts at dealer cost were 350.00. and who knows what the labor would have been. I finally got mine fixed and it sounds like a nice bike now. Thanks Yamaha. I also put on a set of cobra speedster longs, and a fi200r fuel management system. Made the bike sound better than a harley. It also took out the pulsation that I used to feel.

SOURCE: Neutral Light won't come on; bike won't start

O.K. guys! for those of you having problems with your NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH . I had this problem on my 1994 goldwing se and after calling dealers that had all kinds of replies that I didn't like I decided to see if I could find a solution and I did find the problem and fixed it without having to even buy parts. The bad part is that you have many parts to remove to get at the problem but it's possible for anybody to fix the switch.
Here is what I did:I took out my manual and decided to remove the top part of the gas tank cover.By following my manual I removed the 2 pockets on each side of the handle bars then I followed the instruction on removing thecover that holds your radio all the way to the cover where you fill the gas tank.When that cover is released you will see wiring that plugs into your radio follow instruction and remove the plugs and get that whole cover out of your way....
Now on the left side of the bike (same side as the side stand) you will have to remove the left side cover where the REVERSE LEVER is again if you follow your manual it is possible to do without much trouble. Now when you have removed that side panel you will see where your REVERSE LEVER was and you will see a little switch attached to that reverse switch. REMOVE that switch and spray it with electrical cleaner solution and work it back and forth till you hear and feal it clicking and once that happens put it back on the bike and try it out.YOU SHOULD HAVE A GREEN LIGHT AND YOUR BIKE SHOULD START. That is how I repaired my switch and don't have the green light problem at all now.IF THAT SOLVES YOUR PROBLEM YOU CAN NOW PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER.
If your switch doesn't clean up and doesn't work you can order one from hondaline.

Synchronize the carburetors. Carburetors that are out of synchronization will cause the clutch and primary chain to rattle.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Check / replace the diode that connects the clutch switch and neutral switch. The diode normally would have green/red and light green/red wires.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

1972 Honda CB 100 hard to find neutral


Hi, Matt, a proper clutch adjustment starts by squirting some silicone spray or Brake Kleen into the top of the rubber boot on the clutch cable and sliding it back exposing the cable adjuster. Loosen the jam nut and turn the adjusting screw all the way in. Loosen the jam nut on the clutch pack adjusting screw until light resistance is felt against the clutch rod then back the adjusting screw out 3/4 of a turn and tighten the jam nut. Go back to the clutch cable adjuster and back it out until there is 1/8" free play between the clutch lever and the bracket perch. This is correctly accomplished by pulling the clutch cable end outward with your right hand and pulling the clutch lever in with your left hand and modest pressure on both hands to eyeball the free play. Tighten cable adjuster jam nut and slide rubber boot back to its original position.

I have a 1999 Honda CBR 600 f4 and recently it won't start while in gear. Before, I could start it while I gear with the clutch lever pulled. Now it only starts while in neutral. Any ideas?


the neutral light, side stand switch and clutch switch are all wired together.
If the neutral light works.then check the side stand cut out works as normal, finally check the micro switch under the clutch lever, it should make a tiny click when the clutch is activated, also check it with a multi meter, follow the wires back to the plug and check the resistance goes from 0 to 1 with the clutch pulled

What would be the symptoms of a broken wire on a neutral switch for a 1984 cb Honda/


No neutral light, will not start without clutch lever pulled in (and possibly sidestand up, if it has a safety switch).
If the broken wire is touching a ground, the neutral light will not go off.

Model T clutch adjustment


Check to see that when you pull the lever back, that the parking brakes aren't grabbing. Approximately straight up, and down with the lever, is the neutral position, then pulling it back slightly towards the seat will set the parking brake.

Also, push the low pedal in very slowly, until you feel when you hit the low speed cam. You'll feel it. There will suddenly be more resistance at this point. That's where neutral is. The pedal should move down about 1 and 1/2 inches. The manual states halfway, this may be incorrect.

Jack up the car, (Use chock blocks under the tires, and work on a hard, level flat surface), check that the parking brakes are not setting when the lever is in the neutral position.

And yes, your deduction is correct about when the clutch oil is cold. The clutch used is a 'Wet Clutch'.
