A while back I had an intermittent problem with the failure of the neutral light so not allowing a start which I rectified for around 8 months ago. I now have a permanant problem which I cannot trace. I have completed all the tests in accordance with the Haynes manual and no problem can be found. I cannot find the sensor nor the switch as this manual is thin on the ground re this switch and sensor. The bike is a 1997 SE 1500. Any suggestions? Cheers - Tony Pope.

Had a similar problem with my 89 after it sat for 2 years. An old 1200 wing rider ask if he could have a try. He began to ratchet the reverse lever very rapidly for a minute or so. Neutral light came on and have not had that problem again.

The reverse switch (engaged when the reverse lever is disengaged) is famous for failing/going out of spec and causing the bike not to start.
