Does it light up when you first turn the key on? All panel lights self test at that time. If not you could just have a defective bulb.

No light when I turn the key so I guest the light is faulty. Thanks for the cue.

I did replace the bulb by a tested one and still no OD light. There must be a switch somewhere.

There is a switch, it's the gear position switch that tells the computer what gear the bike is in. It's also used to light the neutral light and the OD light.

I just noticed that my OD light doesn't light up during the self test but my OD light does work. Hmmmm?

Same thing with me. It doesn't light up for the test but light up in gear. Mine was faulty and no need to desasemble all the fairing to replace it.

Looking at the schematic diagram, the sidestand, overdrive, neutral and high beam indicator lights are NOT connected to the "self test" circuit that lights the bulbs at start-up.
