i have a problem,i racked the front on my 2007 wing and put the the pipe that the mirrors bolt on to. my son- in- law said to start it up and see if it drove better with the 6 degree rack and now i can not find neutral. i did not put the dash gauges in but i do not think that should have anything to do with the shifting. this has me stumped, does anyone have a clue what is going on???

I agree that the electronics should not effect shifting the gears which includes neutral. But I also acknowledge that I may be wrong as the Wing is an electronic marvel.

Usually I have found when a problem develops following some work on the bike, the problem was somehow created by me doing the work. So I backtrack what I did looking for what I may have goofed up.

Sound to me like the clutch is draggin slightly and won't fully disengage. When that happens, it's difficult to find neutral. Recommend bleeding the clutch and see where that takes you.
