Talking How To: Fix Neutral Switch 03-0?

so does your r6 neutral switch not work?? does it bug the shit out of you like it does me? then these are some pictures to help you out since i didnt find one in here yet. if there is, then please just delete.

tools needed,
14mm socket deep
small extension to make it easy
3/8" rachet
can of brake cleaner

here is just a picture of the bike, i just like it

we will be working near the rear strut.

this is the neutral switch you will need a deep 14 with about a 1" extension to make it real easy.

remove wire, place the screw driver into the contact area of the wire and press the metal part of the screw driver up against something metal to verify that the light comes on, the strut wont work, try something heavy duty metal, if it does, go ahead, if not, might want to check your other electrical systems.

you can really tell here but it will stick when you press it down. get some brake cleaner and spray it down get it so that you can press it down and it will pop back up. should only take a few sprays/ cleaning

a blury picture of the ball that you need to press up and down to get it to work.

reinstall switch, if you will notice that there is a washer behind there, when i first tried it still wouldnt trigger the light on, so i removed the washer like so, and just rtv'd the threads. and after that....


thanks for a great forum!

im guessing by the title it fixes your neutral switch, so it will show that you are in neutral on the guage cluster
