Neutral light

Postby trikerbob » Wed Aug 29, 2012 3:32 pm



Hi :?
i have a 1982 GL1100 interstate trike, on investigating why my neutral light does not come on, i removed the lower fairing panels on both sides as i was removing the dummy tank anyway, & i find a thick black wire with a bullet connector on the end, tapped to the frame, this wire is coming from the bottom of the engine & going nowhere.
Can you guys please tell me as to where this wire connects to, i believe it is the neutral light wire but i do not know if it connects to an ignition live or not.
I will post some picks of it asap.
Thanks in advance fellow wingers. :roll:

On the 1982, the neutral switch is mounted inside the front engine cover:

Once it is removed, you can see the thick black wire it connects to through its oil-proof grommet:

I don't have a picture of where it goes from there unfortunately, but that should at least give you an idea of where to start looking. The wire coming from the neutral switch should be black/red, and it then connects to the neutral diode (located under false tank on left side, and also to the neutral light, to a light green/red wire:
