Hey guys,
I am mounting a neutral indicator light on my bike and was wondering where the best place to tap into the wiring is. I looked at an older post by ddialogue to get started. (Thanks Dave)
Took the tank off and found a connector up by the radiator. The blue wire goes in then changes colors going out.
Just wanted get some advice on where to tap into the blue wire before I start cutting up this harness.

Thanks.

I'm in the process of dual sporting my 426 but don't know if I'm going to use a neutral indicator. I do have to have a high beam indicator but still can't figure out how to make one work easily. Do you have one on your bike...if so what did you do to make it work?

My Trickdualsport kit came with a built in high beam indicator.
If you locate the wire which provides the voltage for high beam and put a splice in it, come off of the splice with a second wire and connect it to a 12 volt LED, and then to ground. This assumes your system is 12DC. If its AC, use a 12V incandescent lamp. That should work.

Has anyone added a neutral indicator light to a 02 wr426? I have a rekluse auto clutch so it's hard to tell when it's in neutral. I've read a couple threads on disconnecting the wire from the neutral switch to get full power to the coil when in neutral. Can I use that wire if I disconnect it?

I just pulled the pin from the harness and soldered it to the existing wire, reinserted it into the harness, and then shrunk-wrapped the diode and wires to weather protect them. It's been working great so far.

Yeah, that little green light is cool...in a nerdy kind of way! :D

Sorry to dig up an old thread but I would like to add a neutral light to my 02 426 and my wifes 05 TT-R125.
Stupid question but aren't all bikes 12v DC :thumbsup:
Some threads say you need to add a diode and some say different. Is one really required? :bonk:

I'm electrically-stupid myself. That's why I turned to TT to help me with my neutral-switch LED. :eek:

As I understand it, the diode will only let voltage flow one direction. I was told this was a necessary thing to install so that voltage isn't accidentally sent to the ignition (oops!)

Don't quote me but the lighting system on our thumpers is AC while the ignition system is DC. You'll be able to do the neutral switch LED mod but the only difference between my bike and yours is that your bike will need to be running to see it.

Good luck! :thumbsup:
