1984 Gear Indicator Position Switch

Post by sprint » Sun Jan 26, 2014 6:14 pm

Just acquired a 1984 Gl1200 Aspencade today (Non-running) I was told by the P.0. that it keeps burning out clutch switch diodes and low and behold it is missing and one of the wires is blackened i am trying to chase down the light green/ red wire that goes to the Gear indicator switch. Does any one know where the switch is located, I cannot find it in the manual. Any insight would be appreciated

To my recollection,the neutral/gear selector switch is located behind the front cover.
Don't pull it off till you have verified the switch is bad and a replacement can be located.
