Re: Center stand and neutrals dashboard light doesn't work sometimes
There is a controller under the rear seat - right side on the fender that monitors gear position, brakes, bike speed and side stand for safe operation of the center stand. Since you say the green "N" does not always show up, that makes the controller think the bike is in gear. That needs to be fixed.
The gear position sending unit is on the back of the transmission but it is not easy to get to. The connector for it is easy to get to and is located under the body panel known as the battery cover on the left side (just above the rear foot peg plate). It is a five pin connector (only 4 are used) with the following wire colors: Brown (pin 1), yellow/white (pin 2), yellow/black (pin 3) and yellow/blue (pin 4). If you are in neutral the switch should show continuity from pin 1 to each of the the other three. This condition tells the dash that you are in neutral and the dash generates the "N" as well as a I/K Bus signal to the center stand controller. So either the switch does not always connect the wires together or the dash does not read it correctly. I would suspect the switch is not always working correctly. You can test the dash by undoing the connector and shorting all the pins together and turn on the key. You should see the green "N". If you do then the switch is at fault. If not then the dash has a fault.
