2 posts in this topic

Could someone tell me what would happen if the neutral switch would be defective. Would the bike run differently and if yes how different.I have a stutter issue only at 3/4 to full throttle and this only happens in 5th gear only ????.It sound like a misfire maybe timming goes out of wack??? not sure.:thumbsup:

The neutral switch retards timing and lowers the rev limit when the wire is grounded, so if it shorts the engine will be a little sluggish, and won't rev over 7000.

But that would happen in all gears. What you have sounds a lot like a problem with 5th gear forcing itself out of gear under a load due to wear at the locking lugs that engage it, and the resultant bent shift fork.
