On my 1100 the Neutral switch is in a ridiculous location, pretty much impossible to get to the screw to disconnect the wire. Rather than mess with that I simply got out the wire cutters, and then soldered it back together when the engine was back in with new stator.

Hi,I figured out how to get that plug out,it took a bit of time but there is a plate under the coils that you can see where the plug was,all I did was bend the tabs holding the brake and clutch lines,then carefully lifted the lines out of the way then the plug slid right out,just had to put the lines back in place and bend the tabs back down, Yea. :D
