Neutral indicator

Hi all, I've just noticed that the neutral indicator isn't showing. Also the engine won't run with the stand down, this has just recently happened as the 'N' was showing and I've had it running on the stand.
It must be something I've disturbed when tidying the wiring both under the seat, and behind the fairing. Unless someone else has had this issue... any ideas?

I put the side stand down to kill my motor. It never has ran with the side stand down.

Wandering through the wiring can create consequences.

My guess would be that the neutral switch is bad.

I tend to agree, instead of the 'N' I have a 'CHECK' so its like the bike isn't getting the signal that it is in neutral.
Also the clock needles sweep as they should when I turn on, but the pump doesn't prime until I lift the stand.

Does the neutral indicator show? Or is 'CHECK' displayed when you turn the ignition on?

If the transmission is in neutral when I turn the ignition on the green light comes on. I don't remember seeing "check" .

I have now solved this issue, the fault was with the indicator flasher relay, which also incorporates the side stand relay.
I replaced it and everything is back to normal. One to remember.
Gert and RLBranson like this.

Well done. I didn't know they shared a relay.
Thanks for being one who actually follows up with the solution. Not universal.
Really helpful for somebody someday.
