I was so Close

Postby CrazyLeggz » Sun Jul 10, 2011 6:35 pm



Repaired somethings over the winter right up until now . Wanted to start her and sync the carbs and the Gremlin showed up. Turned on the key everything came on except the Neutral light. Pushed the start button anyway .No response, Pulled in the clutch at first nothing nothing. Then it cranked ,then it didnt . the dash started reading third gear, the bike was in neutral , It cranked a few times after that and stopped reading any gear. Could I have the Neutral indicator in the wrong position. I had to put in a new water pump. Hate to remove front cover again tired of wrenching the summer away want to ride :o :oops: Oh Yea everything else works fine.

think simple first.
i'd disconnect the battery and wait several seconds. electrical isn't my forte but I see it over and over where we all dread and accept the worst first.

My thinking is that doing all this work had everything out of sync and it doesn't know where it is.
Just a hope and a thought.

I'd pull the connector for the neutral switch and check its output in the different gears first, to make SURE it's the problem first, before going through pulling that front cover again!

Thanks for the options. I did get a large spark when I connected the ground wire last. As for the indicator connector you wouldnt know if its clear black or green would you the picture in the manual is to dark to make anything out. Ill let the results be known this weekend.

If anyone checks back to read of the results, here its . I had the neutral sending switch in the wrong position. Now that Ive removed the front cover a few times its old hat to me now.All is well now and just a word to the wise, if you ever rebuild your carburators ; and I endorse Randaks rebuild kit, you will be told to fill the carbs before installing, DO IT! just take my advise DO IT. I had issues and had to remove them twice . I might also suggest using a long gas line and applying a little wind blowing pressure just to be sure there are no leaks. Off to sync them then to ride . See you all on the road .
