Zimi,
I have never had trouble with my neutral switch, maybe yours is bad. I am thinking it makes a ground but I am tired now and want to sleep, not to look at the wiring diagram.

OK I looked at the diagram,,,it is called te idle switch and it goes to ground on one side so jumping the wire to it to ground should make the light work if everything else is OK.
IMHO.

Have you disconnected your kickstand switch?
For racing I would eliminate as much as possible.

It should idle at minimum 1600 rpm's, maybe more.

Laro,
Are you a little high?
Man that Ramones T-shirt is suggestive of attitude adjustment problems?

Maybe you need a Sami sandwitch.

Reindears, or what.

But then what do Swedes know.
I heard they drink too much?

And there is the blonde factor.

What is your diagostic if I can still start the bike normally even if the light is out? it's not the bubble because it lights up when i pass from 1st to neutral and 2nd to neutral.

To Amme, no I mean the technical control in order to get the numberplate in Switzerland

What's this "bubble" you were talking about? I ask because my neutral light is out as well, although it doesn't kick on between gears, it just doesn't come on at all.

Sorry I think it's a spelling mistake, I wanted to say the green led on the dashboard.

The kickstandswitch is disconnected.

Bmwktmbill, I tried to disconnect the green cable coming on the neutral switch and put it to the ground. It works, the green light stays on... even if I have a gear. it seems to me that it's pretty difficult to dismount this neutral switch, because of the for of the housing. With a nut it's not possible and with a key, pretty difficult, I tried a little bit, but abandonned. Will probably leave it..

What to do to bypass the clutch switch? I think I don't need it.

Connect the wires together, it should start in any gear.

Just found this thread!

On mine I found it gets harder to find neutral when the oil is getting old, immediately corrected with a change!

The neutral sensor is found behind the front sprocket cover and runs along with 2 oil lines and gets cooked if not routed just right! This can change how the electricity flows. It can permanently bake the strands and make the wire very brittle!

Like Velocibiker, my personal preference for idle speed is 1500 to 1650 RPM when the engine is at operating temperature. Substantially below 1500 RPM and the auto-decompression mechanism starts to "rattle".
My LC4 is a '03 MisAdventure with a re-jetted and slide-drilled BST40, a "breather" side cover of my own design and a Supertrapp IDS2 with quiet core and 10 discs.
My bike makes 300 HP at the rear wheel and does 5th gear roll-on wheelies

Laro,
Oh shit, pissed on another bible.

Where the fuck is Creeper?
I'm scared he's gonna show up at my house looking for a sandwich.

If jesus was a biker he'd be riding a KTM.
I don't picture him on a chopper or a KLR.

And what does 'Laro' mean in Norwegian anyway?

The Tuareg Rally is over, the bike survived the 7 days. Just minor problems. I realized that it was too heavy for this kind of rally. When you drop it and have to pick it up 10-20 times a day in sand dunes... it feel really heavy. Most competitors had 450 enduro with big tanks.
