1987 aspencade gl1200A shift position sensor Please help I am stuck/

:? I have an 87 Aspencade, This bike was given to me. From day 1 the Neutral light never came on and the gear displayed on the dash were jumble, Having a background in electronic, I bought a Clymer Manual and isolated the problem to the sensor. Performed the tests to the top part of the connector and all worked well. I traced the six pin cable and it goes through a grommet on the timing belt cover asked a fellow member where this sensor is and explained about the timing belt cover. I was told that it was mounted to the block or cover. I see the par t35759MG9-771 Can someone please set me straight and give me a little insight on how to locate and change this sensor. My objective is to restore the neutral light and display the gear that I will be driving in. In some exploded views it seems deep in the engine. Thank you

Ill refer you back to Admins post....y WingAdmin » Fri Sep 09, 2016 3:04 pm

It's very similar to the 1100, you can see pictures of it (along with the steps to get to it) on this page, starting at step 73...viewtopic.php?f=11&t=275
See the pictures starting at pg 68...Just like your gonna take the water pump out.
It's not behind the timing belt cover......The next one down.
