Neutral light flickering???

My green neutral light either stays on or flickers in every gear.

I did a search, but didn't find anything about this.....so I thought you guys could help me narrow it down. I've heard about a neutral switch....Is it adjustable? Is it external or in the tranny???

Thanks,
Luke

Never heard of a flickering. I would say it was just at a connection point as a start. Does it flicker every time you shift or just between 1st and 2nd?

Flickers or stays lit in every gear, not just between gears. It's annoying when riding in the evening, since it's bright.

I had this same trouble at a track day. There was a wire rubbing on the chain. Near the front sprocket cover. I'm at work right now but I can post a pic for you later if need be.

Hope it helps.

Sorry for the long link, I'm in a hurry. This shows where the switch is located. Start with the wiring and trace it out.

pull the bulb out.

neutral lights are lame anyways.

i've had bikes that the light would come on when i thought it was in neutral and it was in gear and wouldnt come on when it was in neutral...

Get to know your bike, and you'll realize the light is useless.

Thanks for the link! Looking at the fiche there apears to be a standard washer, and two optional thickness washers to set the depth of the switch...

14 90442-028-000 WASHER (8MM) 0
15 90443-MJ6-000 WASHER, NEUTRAL 0
16 90463-ML7-000 WASHER (6.5MM)

Now that I know this and where it is I should be able to get it adjusted!

Thanks

Dude, simmer . I've ridden it like this for over 4,000 miles last summer. I guess I haven't needed it, but I am particular about my stuff. The little things are what drives a person crazy!
