No revers light ?

Post by hamguy » Thu Jun 23, 2011 7:41 pm

Hello all .
I have a 1997 gl1500
I just bought the bike about 1 year ago and all was running just great.
I took a trip and when I was getting on the bike to come home it would not go into revers ?
The light would not light up but by rocking the bike back and forth I could feel the bike was ingage into revers after i pulled up the leaver but no light?
This only happened the one time last year and now it has done that again ?
If I pull up the revers leaver nutral light goes out and the revers does not come on but still feels engaged by rocking bike back and forth?
Next I hit the buttton the start the revers moter and the head light dimes?
Has anyone ells ever run accross this problem before?
The only thing that I did this spring is different was chang oil over to semi senthetic from reg oil.

Thanks in advance .....Ray

Ray: I'm not sure by your description but is it just the R light that doesn't work? Does the bike move in reverse when you push the start button?
